Learn Motivational Interviewing to Build Trust, Relationships around Desire for Personal Change

April 12 & May 3 in Columbus, OH  + June 6, June 21 & June in Moraine (Dayton), OH / Help people discover and talk about their desire for personal change, like managing symptoms of mental illness; reducing the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs; and improving physical health. Attend our Center's Motivational Interviewing (MI) training series. Participants engage in skill-building exercises to learn MI's client-centered approaches for responding to desire for change and resistance to change among individuals with severe mental illness, substance use disorders, or co-occurring disorders. MI is a core component of evidence-based practices and other best practices and is used in many service settings:
  • Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)
  • Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT)
  • Supported Employment/ Individual Placement and Support (SE/IPS)
  • Integrated Primary and Behavioral Healthcare (IPBH)
  • Tobacco: Recovery Across the Continuum (TRAC)
  • Housing Services
  • Residential Services
  • Veterans Affairs
  • Child Welfare

What Is MI?

MI is an evidence-based treatment that is one of the best available to address ambivalence to change. It is a conversational approach designed to help people discover their own interest in considering and making positive changes in their lives. It helps them express in their own words their desire for change (i.e., "change-talk") about a number of personal issues, such as

  • Diet
  • Exercise
  • Managing symptoms of mental illness and physical illness
  • Reducing and eliminating the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs
