OHI logo

This training will provide an introduction to motivational interviewing (MI), a client-centered, evidence-based directive method for enhancing intrinsic motivation to change by exploring and resolving ambivalence.

After orientation to the underlying spirit, structure and principles of MI, practical exercises will help participants to strengthen empathy skills, recognize and elicit patient change talk, and roll with discord/resistance. Research evidence will be reviewed for the efficacy of MI and for its significance regarding substance use disorder treatment, criminal justice, health care, mental health care and the client/patient relationship.
