OVERVIEW

Note: This event was formerly known as "Motivational Interviewing 3." The title has been updated to reflect more accurately the content of the training. 

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.

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 CEBP's core Motivational Interviewing training events include the following:

  • Foundations of Motivational Interviewing, Part 1
  • Foundations of Motivational Interviewing, Part 2
  • Motivational Interviewing, Applied Skills for Practice
  • Motivational Interviewing, Resources for Clinical Supervisors

The CEBP 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, the CEBP expects participants to practice the basic strategies of MI in their work settings before attending Part 2.

THIS EVENT | APPLIED SKILLS FOR PRACTICE

Pre-requisite: "Motivational Interviewing Foundations, Part 1 & Part 2," from the Center for Evidence-Based Practices at Case Western Reserve University (or the equivalent).

"Motivational Interviewing, Applied Skills for Practice" builds upon "MI Foundations, Part 1 & 2" and provides participants with the opportunity to continue integrating this evidence-based treatment into their work with individuals who have severe mental illness and/or co-occurring substance use disorders. Participants will be introduced to strategies to manage challenges presented by this population. For instance, participants will practice Motivational Interviewing in the presence of simulated hallucinations. Participants will then continue to integrate prior learning from "MI Foundations, Part 1 & 2" through structured practice of MI's Phase-1 and Phase-2 skills. This workshop is highly interactive and experiential with small and large group activities.

Learning Objectives:
Participants will be able to ...

  • Identify challenges and strategies with integrating MI into services for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorders.
  • Describe and apply OARS.
  • Practice identifying, eliciting and responding to change talk.
  • Practice responding to resistance.
  • Describe and apply eliciting and strengthening confidence and commitment language.
  • Create a personal MI skills development plan.
