About the Workshop: Practitioners are frequently challenged by an individual’s lack of motivation to change negative behaviors that are causing distress in their life. This is particularly true in the case of those who are struggling with substance use disorders. Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based counseling style which adopts a brief intervention format, using critical elements that serve as catalysts for motivation and change. MI addresses how to strengthen client intrinsic motivation to change and reduce ambivalence. This class serves as an introduction to MI and gives attendees the basic tools necessary to incorporate this intervention into their practice.
