Online Interactive Learning

Motivational Interviewing: The Basics

A Thank You For Warm Line Volunteers

Realizing that attention spans are not the same on a screen as they are in person, we have adapted our trainings to allow for a highly interactive, effective learning to our current logistical circumstances.

This training will consist of two four-hour sessions to learn the fundamental spirit, structure, and skills of Motivational Interviewing. You will have the opportunity to practice, ask questions and raises issues that develop as you begin implementing Motivational Interviewing in your practice and life.

Stephen Andrew & Kelley Newkirk will be leading this workshop online via the Zoom video-conferencing platform.

Recent training feedback:

  • "One of the best trainings that I have attended. I gained a lot both professionally and personally over the course of the 2 days."

  • "Participation in break-out sessions to practice what we were learning was very effective."

  • "The training was very informative and allowed for practice. I am looking forward to continuing this practice in my work with clients as well as taking additional MI training in the future."
