Motivational Interviewing (MI)
Our foundational training on Motivational Interviewing, designed to be highly emotionally and intellectually engaging, aims to:
- Introduce participants to the underlying spirit of MI
- Increase participants’ proficiency in the use of the four technical skills (OARS)
- Introduce participants to change talk
This introductory MI training is adapted for the organizational setting and supports managers and leaders in using MI techniques in the context of their supervisory roles. In addition to the above aims, this introductory training also helps managers and leaders distinguish when it is ethical and unethical to use MI with supervisees, given the unique context of the workplace setting.
Discovering Motivational Interviewing: An Introduction
During the introductory Motivational Interviewing training we will review all you need to know about the underlying theory and principles of MI. Through the use of presentations, videos, highly interactive exercises and demonstrations, the trainer will guide participants in learning the technique, style and spirit of Motivational Interviewing.
All participants in the Motivational Interviewing training will have ample opportunity to practice their motivational interviewing skills with the support of the trainer, using “real plays”. With participants consent, participants will receive individualized coaching on how to use the Motivational Interviewing OARS skills.
