Motivational Interviewing Series- January 19, 21, 26 & Feb. 2, 2022

Motivational Interviewing (MI) can be simply described as a collaborative conversation style for strengthening a person’s own motivation and commitment to change. Using MI, a professional strategically guides a conversation so the person hears themselves talk about possibilities and advantages of change. Research is clear that an effective MI conversation can improve targeted outcomes in multiple behavioral domains by helping people reduce ambivalence and hear their own thoughts about change.

January 19 @ 9:00 am
