This class will guide participants through an in-depth sequence of learning activities to enhance your understanding and application of Motivational Interviewing knowledge and skills you may already have.  

Participants will:  

  • Explore the different ways to support behavior change included in the Motivational interviewing four processes: Engaging, Guiding, Evoking and Planning 

  • Expand your skills in applying the key principles and core skills of MI

  • Deepen and vary reflective listening skills, eliciting change talk and responding effectively to sustain talk, discord and change talk

  • Develop additional skills for helping clients/patients to explore and resolve their ambivalence about health behavior change.  

  • Apply and practice MI skills and strategies designed to evoke motivation for change. 

  • Adapt the MI method and spirit to best fit participants’ current practice setting.


The widely used approach of Motivational Interviewing (MI) offers many evidence-informed, person-centered communication skills and techniques to compliment your coaching competencies. Professionals can use these skills to achieve successful and sustained behavior outcomes and encourage growth and progress with their clients. 

 

There is robust scientific evidence to support the efficacy of MI in helping patients make positive health-behavior changes. Research has demonstrated that motivational interviewing can improve client engagement, help to resolve client ambivalence, and promote client activation in activities that lead to better health outcomes. 

 

Learning activities will include demonstrations, class discussions and presentations, and small group exercises, with opportunities for participant practice with feedback. 

 

Consider attending this class if you are a coach or healthcare professional who:  

  • Works with people to change health behaviors.  

  • Are interested in learning more about MI or building/increasing the MI knowledge skills you already have 

  • Would like to translate MI knowledge into practice.

  • Desires hands-on opportunities to hone MI skills.

  • Feel more confident in using your Motivational Interviewing skills for the national board exam.
