Event Details

Motivational Interviewing is a client-centered, evidence-based, directive method for enhancing intrinsic motivation to change by exploring and resolving ambivalence.


This two-day training will begin with a presentation and discussion on providing culturally appropriate care for LGBTQ+ patients. Using this as a backdrop, the remainder of the training will focus on a discussion of motivational interviewing 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 learn the fundamentals of Motivational Interviewing, explore ways of integrating Motivational Interviewing theories into other treatment approaches, and practice Motivational Interviewing in the context of diverse populations through role playing and discussion.


Target Audience: Board of Directors, CEO, Medical, Dental and Behavioral Leadership, Quality Improvement, Outreach & Enrollment
