Helping professionals increasingly recognize the benefits of using motivational interviewing (MI), an evidence-based communication style shown to enhance engagement, increase readiness, reduce discord, and guide conversations to support health and related change. 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.
