Goal of Training
This training begins with philosophical conversation about blending Motivational Interviewing and group practice, as suggested by Wagner and Ingersoll in the text Motivational Interviewing in Groups.  We will discuss shaping group conversations in ways that meet the goals of 1) engaging the group, 2) exploring perspectives, 3) broadening perspectives, and 4) moving into action as well as how to gauge timing and movement through these four phases. Participants will be offered an opportunity to discuss and/or practice integrating specific strategies into current groups or creating a new MI group for their work environments.

Behavioral Objectives
Upon completion of this session participants will be able to:
1.Clarify motivational interviewing spirit, skills, and processes
2.Explore the interconnect between motivational interviewing process and group development
