Motivational Interviewing

Overview

Motivational Interview is one of the most requested training topics for MDHI stakeholders. We are pleased to engage with Matt Bennett, Bennett Innovation Group, for a series of trainings in August. Though it is not required, we highly encourage attendees for the Motivational Interviewing training held on August 16 to also attend the Trauma Informed Care training on August 9. 

 

Motivational Interviewing

“Motivational interviewing (MI) is a collaborative, goal-oriented style of communication with particular attention to the language of change. It is designed to strengthen personal motivation for and commitment to a specific goal by eliciting and exploring the person’s own reasons for change within an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion (Miller & Rollnick, 2012).”

MI provides a strategic framework for building relationships through active communication approaches and strategies termed the Spirit of Motivational Interviewing. These approaches and strategies serve as a guide for how we structure our interactions with clients and guide how we set up programming. Using the Spirit of Motivational Interviewing as a foundation, the second part of this training will explore how people move through the stages of change and how MI implementation helps people move from contemplating a change to finding motivation for action.

Building on these foundational skills, the focus will shift to the heart of MI. Change happens when people feel a type of stress called cognitive dissonance. Cognitive dissonance occurs when a person realizes that their actions and behaviors do not align with their values or how they want to live their lives. While cognitive dissonance is uncomfortable, it creates motivation to bring about changes to eliminate it.

Beverages and snacks will be provided. Lunch will be on your own, and there are several options for lunch near the training site.
