This two-session webinar defines the evidence based practice of Motivational Interviewing (MI) and draws attention to the distinction between practicing MI and Client Centered Counseling. Many providers, because they've attended an MI training, are under the impression they are practicing MI. When in reality, based on review of audio recordings, they are not. This interactive webinar series will address this misconception and help providers to intentionally practice MI when appropriate.
1) Identify the three core components of Motivational Interviewing (MI).
2) List the elements that constitute the practice of MI vs. Client Centered Counseling.
3) Discern when the use of MI is appropriate and when it is not.
