Effective Use of Motivational Interviewing to Engage and Help People
Who Use Stimulants & Marijuana
 

A One-Day Workshop, Advancing Your Practice

This one day action packed workshop will provide a in-depth learning for an evidence-based clinical method of communication - Motivational Interviewing (MI). After a brief introduction to stimulants and cannabis (chemistry, physiology & prevalence rates) we will quickly shift gears to learning the underlying spirit, structure and skills of Motivational Interviewing.

Through a series of practical exercises this workshop will help participants strengthen empathy skills, recognize and elicit “change talk”, and roll with the discord/ resistance. Participants will experience the efficacy of Motivational Interviewing and the importance of it in working with clients engaged in substance use/ misuse with a focus on creating meaningful collaboration that leads toward change.

 Motivational Interviewing is a person-centered; goal oriented method for enhancing intrinsic motivation to change by exploring and resolving ambivalence. Motivational Interviewing has emerged as one of the most critical and effective intervention approaches when working with people to promote behavior change, and shown to be especially effective when paired with behavioral treatment for those who misuse/ abuse of substances. 

 


 
Learning Objectives:

 Participants will be able to:

              Listen well and deeply

             Describe basic chemistry and physiology of stimulants and cannabis

             Describe four aspects of the spirit of motivational interviewing

             Explain the difference between motivational interviewing and person centered and other models of care

             Recognize the ability to respond to persons served with complex, empathic reflective statements using open questions to “move” the conversation.

             Identify “change talk” within a person’s speech

             Provide a crisp empathic summary statement collecting change talk with a closing inquiry/ open question
