About the training: Motivational Interviewing is a collaborative, person-centered form of guiding to elicit and strengthen motivation for change. It is a way of working with persons to assist them in accessing their intrinsic motivation to change behaviors that contradict their essential values and interfere with the achievement of their life goals. Motivational Interviewing is both a philosophy and a set of strategic techniques. It is an evidence-based treatment with a broad range of applications. The Center for Evidence-Based Practices makes an attempt to incorporate exercises and examples specific to the unique practice settings of participants, with an emphasis on individuals with severe and persistent mental illness and/or substance use disorders.

Foundations of Motivational Interviewing: Part 1 introduces participants to the philosophical roots and essential constructs of the model. Participants will be introduced to the Engaging process and learn skill-building exercises designed to assist them in utilizing person-centered approaches and engage people in change discussions. They will practice strategies to respond to resistance in work settings for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness and/or substance use disorders.

Foundations of Motivational Interviewing: Part 2 reviews the basic concepts learned in Foundations of Motivational Interviewing: Part 1 and discusses with participants their experiences integrating the model into their work. They will be introduced to the Focusing, Evoking and Planning processes. Participants will learn specific techniques to recognize, evoke and strengthen change talk, as well as consolidate a person’s commitment to change. Participants will have an opportunity to practice these techniques in role/real-play and other group exercises.
