Event description


Advanced Motivational Interviewing [MI] for Tobacco Cessation is an intensive learning opportunity which was developed to facilitate a deeper understanding of how MI can be a strategy healthcare provides can use during a brief intervention for tobacco cessation. This workshop will increase the provider’s self-awareness of competency in Motivational Interviewing through both instruction and skill building.
