Motivational Interviewing Skills Coaching – New Offering this Fall
Have you taken a course on MI and are looking for an opportunity for guided practice?
Do you want to stay updated with MI developments?
Responding to requests from training participants for additional practice opportunities, Change Talk Associates is offering two group coaching sessions focused on ongoing refinement of MI skills for those who have taken previous training. There are recent and significant changes in MI with the publication of two books: the 3rd edition of the MI core text, MI: Helping People Change, and MI in Groups.
Over two evenings you will get the inside scoop on what’s new, and practice your MI skills in a safe and supported small group context. We will focus on two of the newly outlined processes of an MI conversation, evoking change talk and shifting to planning – ‘sticky spots’ commonly identified by training participants. Upon registration, you will be asked for additional topics that we may be able to integrate into the sessions or consider for future topics.
Participants will also receive a free copy of the ‘Value Cards’ and a letter of completion.
