What is Motivational Interviewing? (morning) During this workshop you will learn about Motivation Interviewing (MI), a tool for use in helping people resolve their ambivalence, or internal conflict, about changing their behavior. The workshop will explain what MI is, why you hear people talking about the Spirit of MI and why that is so important. This introduction to MI will present the history of MI and discuss recent developments in the field as well as evidence of efficacy.

How is Motivational Interviewing Applied? (afternoon) During this workshop participants will further explore both the importance of the Spirit of Motivational Interviewing (MI) and guidelines for specific applications of MI.
