Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based practice that practitioners can use to help patients develop internal motivation for behavioral change. It is particularly useful to engage new patients in the early stages of treatment or counseling and those who seem“resistant” to change. MI has been widely demonstrated to be associated with better patient engagement, retention in treatment/counseling, and reductions in risky behavior. The course is based on MI 3, the most recent edition of Miller and Rollnick’s text, and teaches the theory, “spirit”, and fundamental skills of MI. Didactic presentation, discussion, film, and “real play” practice is incorporated in the class.
This course is approved for 12 CASAC, SW, and LMHC hours.
This two (2) day class will be held at the Staten Island Performing Provider System, 1 Edgewater Plaza (7th floor conference hall) Staten Island, NY. 10305.
