|Purchase This Training:|
Motivational Interviewing is a tool for use in helping people resolve their ambivalence, or internal conflict, about changing their behavior. This training covers what MI is, why you hear people talking about the Spirit of MI and why that that is so important. You will learn how MI works and why, and be given resources for further learning or finding information, and for comparing MI with other approaches.
