How can we help our clients make positive changes in their behavior -- without nagging, shaming, persuading, or arguing? Motivational interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based counseling approach that can help individuals change behaviors they might feel ambivalent about, such as exercising, changing their diet, quitting or reducing alcohol/drugs, adopting safer sex practices, taking important medications, engaging in behavioral activation, or starting psychotherapy. In this 6-hour intermediate-level training, participants will build upon their existing MI skills through interactive and experiential learning activities. We will focus on topics that may impact Veterans we serve, including: motivation to seek help for mental health, addressing PTSD, addressing substance use concerns, management of chronic pain and health conditions.
Participants will have the chance to:
• Review the MI spirit, processes, and principles
• Hone their use of MI micro-skills (open-ended questions, affirmations, reflections, summaries) to evoke change talk
• Practice responding effectively to sustain talk and discord within the helping relationship
• Give advice and information in a motivating way
Training participants will have the opportunity to learn in a variety of ways including lecture, demonstrations, discussions, experiential learning activities, and role plays designed to give them a richer understanding of the use of motivational interviewing in therapeutic and healthcare settings.
