Virtual workshop with both trainers all 3 days

16 CEs accredited by the
American Psychological Association
Cost: $695

This workshop is designed for participants in a variety of positions, including leaders, coaches, clinicians, administrators and supervisors.  Newer users of MI may struggle to participate fully in practice exercises for this workshop, so some experience with MI is recommended.  If you are in doubt, we can discuss this with you individually.  We encourage international applicants, while recognizing that this workshop will require a facile working knowledge of English and accommodation to time zone differences.

Some of the topics we will cover in this workshop:

  • Offering complex reflections: how to do it and how to teach it
  • Cultivating Change Talk: Advanced methods for encouraging change talk from clients
  • Expression of Empathy versus Softening Sustain Talk: How to hit the balance
  • When and how to maintain neutrality in people’s dilemmas
  • Supervising MI: A primer on what we know and tools to help
  • MI in Groups: How is it the same, how is it different?
  • MI in your system: What changes are possible?

Virtual Platform Participation

This training will be conducted virtually from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm (Mountain Time; GMT – 6:00) daily, with a break from 12:00 pm to 12:30 pm.  We know that some online workshops feature mostly didactic lectures – but not this one.  We will be using demonstration, discussion and interpersonal exercises wherein participants will practice skills with each other.

In fairness to others, it is important that registrants be prepared to attend the full workshop and give their attention as they would for an in-person workshop.  In keeping with this approach, our CEU sponsor requires that cameras be kept on during the workshop.  We know that life can interrupt online meetings, so we respectfully request your sincere efforts to be present and ready to work during this workshop.  If you cannot meet these requirements, we look forward to seeing you in a face-to-face training soon.  Questions? Feel free to contact us.
