About the webinar: Motivational interviewing (MI) has emerged as one of the most critical evidence-based approaches when working with patients to promote behavior change. Originally developed in the context of treating substance use disorders, MI is a collaborative method of communication that pays particular attention to the language of change.
Learning objectives: Upon completion, participants should be able to:
- Apply the spirit of motivational interviewing when conducting GPRA assessments.
- Recognize the four metaprocesses of Motivational Interviewing (MI).
- Identify and selectively reinforce talk suggesting readiness that is elicited during assessment situations.
- Pursue further practice and training opportunities in the skills of MI beyond this course.
