Nope! Although MI was created in the field of substance abuse treatment, MI is now widely used in disciplines from counseling psychology to dentistry, education to criminal justice, healthcare, case management, coaching… I’ve trained attorneys who work with clients who are victims of interpersonal violence in MI as well as peer support, law enforcement, HIV case management, life coaches, … I could go on and on!
We offer weekly Live Skills Practice on alternating dates in hopes you can make them, but if not, they are not required to complete the course to earn 8 hours of Continuing Education. 8 Continuing Education hours are provided for self-paced content once the course quiz is complete. If you attend at least 6 of the live virtual sessions, you earn 14 hours of continuing education!
Awesome! That’s a great way to take the course! You can watch videos together, do practice exercises, and support one another to complete the course! Groups are welcome!
You will have access to the 6 modules for 12 weeks. All of the downloadable materials are yours to keep!
Absolutely. Every module covers MI skills you can begin practicing right away. Even a little MI goes a long way, so as the course progresses, your skills will build and you will experience more success in those change conversations!
If you need a refresher in Motivational Interviewing (it’s been a while), or are NEW to MI, this course is for you.
Because Motivational Interviewing has been around for a hot minute (since the early 1980’s!), many folks have had some exposure to MI. Maybe it was talked about in one of your college courses. Maybe a lunch-n-learn. Maybe someone at your agency presented an overview of MI. Maybe you have heard of the OARS but don’t feel confident in each of those skills. You may have the sense you use Motivational Interviewing, but aren’t sure how to describe exactly what that means.
You will complete this course with CONFIDENCE, able to say, “I know what Motivational Interviewing is; I am comfortable using each of the OARS skills; I know how the spirit of MI & OARS & 4 Processes fit together; and, I know when to pick up the tool of MI (and when not to)!”
