"Foundations of Motivational Interviewing, Part 1" introduces participants to the philosophical roots and essential constructs of this evidence-based treatment. Participants will engage in skill-building exercises designed to assist them in utilizing client-centered approaches and strategies to foster change and respond to ambivalence to change among individuals with severe and persistent mental illness and/or substance use disorders.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to ...

  • Define Motivational Interviewing (MI) and its core elements
  • Describe provider behaviors that disengage people from behavior change discussions
  • Explain the use of open-ended questions and affirmations in the process of engaging people in behavior change
  • Practice reflections and summaries when engaging people with a severe mental illness and/or substance use in behavior change discussions
  • Explain how to provide information and advice in a MI-consistent manner

Skill Building

Our Center provides Foundations of Motivational Interviewing as two all-day events, Part 1 and Part 2. Both workshops provide core concepts and skills from which participants may build proficiency in the use of this evidence-based treatment. At the completion of Part 1, we expect participants to practice the basic strategies of MI in their work settings before attending Part 2.

ABOUT MI

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a collaborative, person-centered form of guiding to elicit and strengthen motivation for change. It is a way of working with people (consumers, clients, patients) to assist them in accessing their intrinsic motivation to change behaviors that contradict their essential values and interfere with the achievement of their life goals. Motivational Interviewing is both a philosophy and a set of strategic techniques. It is an evidence-based treatment with a broad range of applications.

Our MI Training Series

The Center for Evidence-Based Practices (CEBP) at Case Western Reserve University makes an attempt to incorporate exercises and examples specific to the unique practice settings of participants in its training events, with an emphasis upon skills that advance the recovery of individuals with severe and persistent mental illness and/or substance use disorders. The Center's core Motivational Interviewing training events include the following:

  • Foundations of Motivational Interviewing, Part 1
  • Foundations of Motivational Interviewing, Part 2
