This two-day knowledge and skills-based workshop provides a foundation in MI, emphasizing the core elements, key skills and strategies that are helpful in addressing a range of topics, such as substance use, diabetes, mental health, chronic illness, and disease prevention. No previous experience in MI is necessary.
