Getting Youth UNSTUCK using Motivational Interviewing

March 13, 2019  10 a.m.- 4 p.m.


Target Audience: This session is open to all DYCD-funded  program staff, supervisors, and site directors who work with youth.


Is there such a thing as an unmotivated young person? Do you sometimes struggle to motivate youth? Does it seem like no matter what you do, the youth you work with stay STUCK?  Using video, role play, and youth scenarios, this workshop will examine the guiding principles of an approach called Motivational Interviewing. Through exploring the stages of change, you will learn how to plan interventions that meet the youth where s/he is and help them move forward in their life. You will gain skills to facilitate conversations with young people that decrease their ambivalence and encourage motivation for positive change.

You will learn to listen for and elicit a young person’s internal reasons for making changes in their lives and help him/her achieve their goals.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

1)      Identify the guiding principles of motivational interviewing

2)      Implement the stages of behavioral change with youth

3)      Develop conversational tools for increasing internal motivation and for decreasing ambivalence

Facilitated by: Dr. Andrew Hamid
