Motivational Interviewing is a conversation style that can be distilled down to “a way of being with” and “a way of doing with” people. This 3 hour training for non-clinical and non-direct service staff will focus on the “way of being with” people to help clients engage in the change process from the moment they contact your organization to set up an appointment. The material will provide participants with an in-depth overview of the Spirit of Motivational Interviewing and how it can help facilitate engagement in services.
