    Program Description:

    Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a tool used to help people resolve their ambivalence, or internal conflict, about changing their behavior. During this full-day in-depth workshop, you will increase your knowledge about Motivational Interviewing. There will be opportunities to develop your skills in both Phase 1 skills, OARS (Open-ended questions, Affirmations, Reflective listening and Summaries), Phase 2 skills, and Eliciting Change-Talk. Additionally, MI skills such as strategies for dealing with resistance and providing information, will be presented and demonstrated.

    This program will not cover the basics of Motivational Interviewing. We recommend knowledge of the introductory concepts of MI prior to attending this workshop. Two Motivational Interviewing DVDs (What is Motivational Interviewing and How is Motivational Interviewing Applied) are available for purchase from the Missouri Institute of Mental Health at a special $5.00 discount price of $30.00 for the set with program registration. Easy ordering online or use the registration form included.
