Health Education and Training Institute
We're very pleased to announce that the Health Education and Training
Institute is now offering an online course in motivational interviewing, presented
by the HETI team and facilitated by
Keith Young, LCPC!  We've worked very
hard to make this online course dynamic, informative, interactive, relevant, and
fun!  Access the material within each of the four weeks on your own time, from
the comfort of your home or office!

Motivational Interviewing is a client-centered, evidence-based, directive method
for enhancing intrinsic motivation to change by exploring and resolving
ambivalence.  Our
course objectives are as follows:

During this four-week online workshop, participants will learn:

  • The fundamentals of motivational interviewing
  • The core OARS strategies of the motivational interviewing process
  • Ways to identify and elicit change talk
  • Strategies for exploring and resolving ambivalence

The learning process is varied across several modalities, to maximize your
opportunity to familiarize yourself with motivational interviewing as it can be
practically applied in your practice.  The course includes  
the following
course requirements

  • Watching our prepared online training program
  • Online reading assignments
  • Observation of online motivational interviewing demonstrations
by Stephen Andrew, LCSW, LADC, CCS!
  • Completion of quizzes following material covered
  • Participation in the weekly Discussion Board on our Guestbook
  • Completion of a final assignment, to make the material your own
and improve your comfort level with application of the theory
  • Completion of a course evaluation

**Some Frequently Asked Questions:

1)  Where do I find the course and the materials?
On the start date of the course, you will receive an e-mail at the e-mail address
you provided in your registration.  That e-mail will provide an introduction and a
link to the course, where you'll find everything you need!

2)  How many hours per week will I need to devote to this training, and
when will I need to be online?
The training is designed to require about two hours of your time per week.  You
have the entire week to get them done, on your own time and by your own
schedule, so there is no specific time that you need to be online for any
particular section of the training.

3)  I've signed up.  When will I receive confirmation of my registration?
Please give us one to two business days to send you our notice of registration.

4)  What about credit hours?
The NAADAC Education Provider program approved
this program for 8 CEH credits.

An e-mail address, access to the internet, and a basic understanding of use of
the internet is required.  While we may be able to help you problem-solve
difficulties that may arise with any part of this course, we are not able to provide
computer technical support.  While this course allows for an opportunity to
participate in discussion with other participants via discussion board, there are
no 'real time' interactions.  New material for each week will be posted on
Wednesday mornings, and completion of each week's steps are due by the
following Tuesday.  A certificate of completion will be provided when the course
requirements have been met.

The main text for motivational interviewing is
Motivational Interviewing: Helping
People Change, 3rd Edition (Applications of Motivational Interviewing) by
William R. Miller Ph.D., Stephen Rollnick Ph.D.  While it is not required reading
for this online course, we enthusiastically recommend this book to anyone
interested in learning about motivational interviewing.

Credit for continuing education hours from any online course is ultimately
approved, denied and/or limited by regulation from your licensing board or
boards.  Find out directly from your licensing board(s) about whether this is a
possibility for you.
