How might learning MI enhance your practice? 

Imagine your clients uncovering their own motivation and activating themselves more to meet their goals. Motivational Interviewing helps you broaden and deepen your skills to help people make changes based on their values and their reasons to change.

My approach to MI training is hands-on and pragmatic. In our MI workshops I will help you learn MI concepts, practices, and conversational skills to aid clients with their ambivalence of feelings, behaviors, and attitudes. In our active MI workshops you come to understand more of MI framework and approaches for brief health conversations, or longer counseling situations. Extensive research supports MI as an effective way to help people change.
