Motivational Interviewing: The Basics

This workshop will be lively as participants in our concurrent Teaching Motivational Interviewing workshop will be periodically joining to lead exercises as part of their training. We are offering this workshop, as well as the following Advancing the Practice training, at a discount and will be inviting feedback about the new trainers.

From Kelley's recent trainings:

  • "It was a great training. You all did a great job creating a safe and welcoming learning environment."

  • "Really loved learning from Kelley!! I loved watching her practice on one of us."

In the interest of the safety of everyone in all of our communities, we ask that all workshop attendees be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
We will not be checking for proof of vaccination status and will choose to believe that those pursuing compassionate conversation will be honorable of this request.
