Informed by the research on learning MI, we offer a multi-level curriculum to build confidence, competence, and sustainability. Open-access courses are offered multiple times each year.
Courses are offered online and in-person.
Over 4 mornings, learners will explore the foundations of Motivational Interviewing to support them in their work with others.
