OVERVIEW

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 persons 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.

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, with an emphasis upon individuals with severe and persistent mental illness and/or substance use disorders.

"Motivational Interviewing 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 respond to resistance in clinical settings for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness and/or substance use disorders.

Learning Objectives:
Participants will be able to ...

  1. Explain why and how people engage in change.
  2. Define Motivational Interviewing.
  3. Define the "Spirit" of MI.
  4. Describe OARS Client-Centered Counseling Skills.
  5. Explain, recognize, and respond to resistance to change when working with severely mentally ill/substance using clients.

Food Policy:
Due to constraints set forth by funding policies of the State of Ohio, refreshments will not be provided during the training. Feel free to bring your own beverages and snacks.
