Description: Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a collaborative approach to working with individuals that helps to facilitate behavior change. Participants will gain a working knowledge of the term, “Harm Reduction” and will walk away with a deeper understanding of the spirit of Motivational Interviewing including when, where and how to use this evidenced-based practice with clients. We will identify specific tools to use and discuss strategies for implementation in your place of practice.

Objectives:

  1. Know and understand the basics of Motivational Interviewing, including how to use specific skills to enhance motivation.
  2. Know and understand the term “Harm Reduction” and how it fits into interventions for treating individuals with substance use disorders.
  3. Know and understand how MI facilitates the reduction of discord in the therapeutic alliance leading to positive behavioral change.
