This 1-day, 6.5 hour workshop provides behavioral health counselors an opportunity to consider the potential impact of using Motivational Interviewing (MI) methods in facilitating counseling groups. The workshop includes brief instructional presentations, demonstrations, structured learning activities, and group facilitation skill practice, all within an MI framework. Clinicians who facilitate groups using a structured, manual-based format and those who utilize more process-focused methods will benefit equally from the workshop. It should be noted, however, that this workshop does not serve as a basic introduction to MI or to group facilitation. It is assumed that participants will have a basic understanding of MI and group facilitation.

Objectives

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

Explain how MI methods and activities can be effectively applied in facilitating counseling groups,

Describe how to utilize an MI approach to enhance client engagement and build motivation for change, and

Utilize up to 12 different group activities aimed at empowering group members to take ownership of their lives and strengthen their sense of self-efficacy.
