MI 101: Fundamentals of Motivational Interviewing, a Chemical Dependency Training Consortium Event
Goal of Training
The goals of this training are to increase awareness and use of Motivational Interviewing (MI) techniques and strategies in daily interactions with clients.  This is an informational and experiential workshop to introduce motivational interviewing to practitioners who have little to no experience with using this evidenced-based practice.  We will discuss the four broad components of skill in motivational interviewing and answer the following questions:
    What is motivational interviewing?
    How might it help me in my day to day work?
    What is the evidence of its efficacy?
    How does it work?
    How different is it from what I am already doing?
    Do I want to learn more about how to do this?

Behavioral Objectives
This training will provide participants with the ability to:
Understand the meaning and purpose of MI through two levels of definition,
Define concepts: Spirit, Skills, & Processes of MI,
Learn and practice the skills (OARS), through video examples and participation in activities,
Learn a strategy for information exchange, and
Begin to explore ways to decrease discord.

This course has been approved by CDTC as a NAADAC Approved Education Provider, for educational credits. NAADAC Provider #100385. CDTC is responsible for all aspects of their programing. Course provides 6 CEU hours for certified and licensed professionals.
