Event description

one. Participants will learn the principles, processes and strategies of

of MI in their work, and explore opportunities to incorporate MI
adherent strategies into routine conversations with clients.

  • Discuss the four principles of Motivational Interviewing (Spirit of MI)
  • Discuss the four processes of Motivational Interviewing
