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.

Who should attend: Emergency Dispatchers working in Stark County.

About this event: Stark County Mental Health & Addiction Recovery supports the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training of law enforcement professionals in our community. Crucial to reducing violence and ensuring successful intervention of mental health and substance use situations, officers are trained in proven and effective communication techniques.

The CIT model was first developed and implemented in 1988 by the Memphis, Tennessee Police Department. The Team was developed to address the special challenges to law enforcement posed by persons with mental illness and to better serve the community.

Emergency dispatchers are a critical link in the CIT program and may include call-takers, dispatchers and 911 operators.  The success of CIT depends on their familiarity with the CIT program, knowledge of how to recognize a CIT call involving a behavioral crisis event, ability to solicit information that will help the community member and the responding CIT Officer, and appropriate dispatch of CIT Officers.

Location – StarkMHAR; Leadership Room, 121 Cleveland Avenue SW, Canton, OH 44702.

Cost – This is a free training.  Parking vouchers will be supplied.

Education credits – Not Applicable.
