Generally recognized as a practical, common sense approach, becoming proficient in MI—however—is an on-going learning process requiring significant training, practice, and feedback/supervision. This intensive 1-day “follow-up” workshop is designed for supervisors who have completed introductory training in MI, and have experience applying the method in supervisory situations. Morning activities will provide an in-depth review of initial two days of training, and in the afternoon participants will be guided through a sequence of activities to move from basic to more advanced clinical skillfulness. Learning activities will include: real-life demonstrations, videotape examples, “real-plays”, case studies, small group exercises, and practice with feedback.

Learning Objectives:
  • Observe and debrief demonstrations and DVD examples of MI.
  • Demonstrate and practice advanced skills and strategies of MI (e.g., strategic reflective listening, rolling with resistance, eliciting change talk, developing discrepancy, mobilizing core values, transitioning through the 4 processes of MI).
  • Receive individual feedback in MI practice behavior.
  • Develop a personal plan for enhancing confidence and competence in applying MI into supervisory situations
