December 7, 2013 @ 9:30 am - December 8, 2013 @ 4:30 pm
Two Day Introductory Intensive (NYC)
The introductory Motivational Interviewing training is appropriate for professionals/professionals-in-training who have had no prior or some exposure to Motivational Interviewing techniques. People whose work involves helping clients achieve behavior change, ( i.e. Psychologists, Social Workers, Psychiatrists, Physicians, Nurses, Case Workers, Outreach Workers, Dieticians, Therapists, Clergy, Personal trainers, probation/parole officers etc.) will benefit most from this intensive MI training.
During the introductory MI training we will review all you need to know about the theory and principles of MI. Through the use of presentations, videos and demonstrations, the trainer will guide participants in learning the technique, style and spirit of MI.

All participants in the Motivational Interviewing seminar will have ample opportunity to practice their motivational interviewing skills with the support of the trainer, using “role-play”, “real play” and the help of a standardized patient (an actor trained to play a client who will give participants feedback on their MI technique during the practice interviews) Participants will learn how to use the Motivational Interviewing OARS skills.
The training will begin at 9:30am and conclude at 4:30pm on Saturday and Sunday December 7th and 8th.
There will be an hour lunch break each day with a catered lunch included. In addition, we will take several 10 minute breaks during the training.
