After initial training in Motivational Interviewing (MI), practitioners are often left to wonder, “How do I advance these skills in everyday practice?” Motivational Interviewing is a skill that improves with practice and feedback. To help facilitate moving towards greater proficiency in MI, we designed this innovative, one-day session to build understanding and skills. This interactive training will combine brief didactics, discussion, experiential activities, and self-reflection to encourage practitioner growth at all levels of experience.


At the conclusion of this training participants will be able to:

  • Have completed an accurate assessment of their own MI skills and ability
  • Identify how the integration of positive psychology elements enhances MI work
  • Articulate three reasons for considering self-efficacy in the treatment/intervention process
  • Describe one area that is interpersonally tricky for them as a practitioner and practice a method for addressing this area/issue
  • Identify three ideas from cognitive science that might have influence in their work with clients and one that resonates personally
  • Describe one new technique related to a deeper understanding of the four processes
  • Identify three strengths as a practitioner and one area for growth in MI
  • Produce a plan of action for the deliberate practice of MI skills
