The Power of Groups Using Motivational Interviewing

Group work provides several effective important steps that help break the isolation often experienced by the client. This training will provide information on how to use groups as a treatment strategy. We will address why using Motivational Interviewing in a therapeutic support group format is extremely effective. We will explore issues of interpersonal interaction in the group process, group norms, empathy, and how to use the group format to lower resistance.

  • “From my experience in this training, I have a better idea of what I need to do next to integrate MI into my group visits, to improve my facilitation and intervention.”

 

  • “I felt a little blindsided because I was not prepared to be so involved with looking at real issues with the "real play" group exercises. Looking back, what bothers me the most about that feeling is that it may indicate that I still have some work to do! Thank you for the sincere caring you put into your work.”

 

  • "A serious, thoughtful and challenging intro to MI and groups."
