The Motivational Interviewing, or MI, Training is designed to bring a foundation of best practices and innovative approaches to human service providers.
According to the founders of MI, William Miller and Stephen Rollnick, “Motivational Interviewing is a collaborative, goal-oriented style of communication with particular attention to the language of change. It is designed to strengthen personal motivation for, and commitment to, a specific goal by eliciting and exploring the person’s own reasons for change within an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion.”
MI is a powerful research based intervention that can be
implemented regardless of the educational level of the service provider or staff person. MI is designed to strengthen a person's motivation for change. This training provides the foundation needed to implement MI effectively.
