Online Interactive Learning
Motivational Interviewing: The Basics
September 2022

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 take place over four weekly three-hour sessions, with a fifteen minute break, to learn the fundamental spirit, structure, and skills of Motivational Interviewing. This will allow time to practice more and bring questions and issues that arise as you begin implementing Motivational Interviewing in your practice and life.

Sara Schieffelin will be leading this workshop online via the Zoom video-conferencing platform.

From Sara's recent trainings:

  • “Sara is an extremely skilled facilitator and did a wonderful job teaching. Learning concrete direct practice skills was extremely helpful. Understanding the "spirit" and simple and complex reflections was enough to shift my practice in a positive direction.”

  • “This is one of the best courses I have ever attended. Thank you.”

  • “Sara was an excellent trainer and the material was presented thoughtfully and effectively. I really learned what MI was all about and I will be able to apply it as the situation calls for.”
