Training Description

By attending this 3-hour course, attendees will have a basic understanding of the spirit of Motivational Interviewing (MI) and ways to begin to implement it with multi-system involved youth and families. Participants will gain practical skills to begin implementation of MI skills into their current work to collaborate with youth and families. Attendees will learn how to engage youth and family’s current motivation to change a particular behavior and then learn how to use MI open-ended questions, affirmations, reflections, and summaries (OARS) to further enhance or consolidate the client’s level of motivation.

Learning Objectives

  • Gain an understanding of the general concepts of MI;
  • Synthesize the spirit of MI in your work and dealings with others; and
  • Practice OARS and plan how to use MI as a workplace tool
