The foundation of all MI work involves learning a new way of “hosting helpful conversations” – in a deliberate and strategic way. This “core training” workshop outlines a fundamental set of interviewing guidelines that tend to help clients begin building an internalized argument for a targeted change. This 3-day workshop is designed to ensure that all participants go beyond just the basic “how to” of MI work. We’ve had overwhelmingly positive feedback on how participants in this program feel better prepared to work at strengthening change motivation after this course because of how it helps them to “get MI”.
MI skill often involves learning from a series of “lightbulb moments” that help spark awareness of deeply ingrained conversational habits that get in the way of our desire to nurture motivation for change!
Learners in our Foundations course take away a clear sense of “why” MI work matters in terms of the work they do with clients. They tell us how helpful it is that the course enables them to understand what MI is (and isn’t), and how it differs from “persuasion” interviewing – one of the toughest habits to break when developing MI savvy.
