Motivational Interviewing

Change is hard. Motivational interviewing (MI), an evidence-based practice to engage people around the change process, has broad applicability from boardrooms to classrooms to living rooms across a multitude of disciplines including mental health, management and everyday relationships with friends and family. In this introductory course, you have an opportunity to explore your communication patterns, learn foundational MI concepts and skills to listen actively and demonstrate deep understanding, and apply new skills through experiential small group practice, discussion and feedback. MI deepens understanding and strengthens engagement to enrich personal and professional relationships that create space for people to change.
