Motivational Interviewing: The Basics

February 2021

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 start with two four-hour sessions to learn the fundamental spirit, structure, and skills of Motivational Interviewing. These two days will be followed with two additional two-hour sessions once a week to practice more and bring questions and issues that arise as you begin implementing Motivational Interviewing in your practice and life.

John Brelsford will be leading this workshop online via the Zoom video-conferencing platform.

From John's recent training:

  • "The training was very well done and I truly enjoyed myself. It was easy to maintain participation and stay engaged throughout the training, despite operating on an online platform. There were very few technical issues that arose and the coordinator did a great job rolling with the new format and adapting to the changes. I would recommend this training to others."

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