Program Summary

As a client-centered method for bringing about lasting change behavior, Motivational Interviewing (MI) or Motivation Enhanced approaches have applications in various human and social service settings.

Although best taught and assimilated through experiential exercises, this webcast aims to teach foundational concepts involved in the method of MI. The program will help staff learn how to influence clients into considering making desired change through intrinsic motivation.

Program Goals and Intended Outcomes

MI is proven to be fully compatible with various other approaches as a method that helps people resolve ambivalence toward change through discovery of intrapersonal motivation by placing complete responsibility for change on the individual. The program is designed for staff with little or no knowledge of the MI approach, as well as those who may already be implementing the model and want a booster or "brush up".

This course is taught by well known instructor Mark Lowis, Licensed Master Social Worker, and member of the International Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers, and author.
