Event Description
Motivational Interviewing is a communication style which aims to ignite a person’s intrinsic motivations to either A) change a behavior, B) make a decision, or C) become a better version of oneself. In a full-day introductory workshop, participants will learn the relational component of Motivational Interviewing: Evocation, compassion, partnership, acceptance. Special attention will be paid to naming and describing the skills of Motivational Interviewing: Open ended questioning, affirming, reflective listening, and summarizing. Participants who complete the introductory training generally receive the knowledge necessary to talk about Motivational Interviewing with others, and will usually leave with a new set of skills to begin practicing individually.

Learning Objectives:
• Participants will identify ambivalence, as expressed through change talk and sustain talk.
• Participants will design open ended questions to evoke change talk.
• Participants will distinguish between affirmation and approval.
• Participants will utilize reflections to express empathy.
