Motivational Interviewing Two-day Intensive
October 24 @ 9:30 am - October 25 @ 4:30 pm
These two days of fast paced interactive learning will provide you with foundational knowledge and skills to use Motivational Interviewing (MI) with your clients. Across a broad range of care settings, being able to successfully engage and harness clients own motivations for making important life changes are key elements for success. The most efficient way to understand the dynamics of the MI model, and to develop competency, is through practice — learning by doing. Through a series of structured learning activities that include role-plays, real-plays, video demonstrations, and small group exercises, you will be progressively guided to improve your skills from basic to more advanced levels. Most importantly, you will be able to transfer and incorporate newly learned MI skills into your real-world interactions. Instructing this two-day workshop is expert Raymond “Chip” Tafrate, PhD, a clinical psychologist and Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Central Connecticut State University
