Description

The NC APSE Employment 1st Academy is partnering with the UNC Institute for Best Practices to provide this 13 hr Motivational Interviewing Training by MINT trainer Stacy Smith, M.Ed., LPC, NCC.

Stacy is an ACT Consultant and Trainer Program Manager with the Institute for Best Practices and is the Co-Coordinator of the North Carolina ACT Coalition, a grassroots provider learning collaborative. Stacy has more than 25 years’ experience in North Carolina mental health services and serves as a consultant, trainer and TMACT evaluator in North Carolina and beyond. She is a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT), and regularly uses Motivational Interviewing in her personal and professional lives. Stacy is also a Meyers-Briggs facilitator, and has experience with organizational consultation and strategic planning.

Motivational Interviewing is a client-centered, evidence-based, directive method for enhancing intrinsic motivation to change by exploring and resolving ambivalence. During this two-day, workshop, participants will learn the fundamentals of Motivational Interviewing, explore ways of integrating Motivational Interviewing theories into other treatment approaches, and practice Motivational Interviewing on "challenging" clients through role playing and discussion. This two-day, 12 hour training will discuss an effective approach in the treatment of challenging clients, and provide participants with an opportunity to explore creative ways of integrating these approaches into an effective therapeutic intervention -- when to use, when not to use Motivational Interviewing. Participants will complete a 1 hour, pre-workshop activity. Total workshop contact hours total 13 hours.
