With our innovative and secure MI Portal, you may upload video and audio samples for review, coaching, and fidelity checks to improve your Motivational Interviewing techniques. Individuals, groups, and agencies use the MI Portal for ongoing work sample submission, to track progress and develop their MI skills over time.
Arizona State University exemplifies a new prototype for the New American University, and is ranked #1 in innovation*. The ASU Center for Applied Behavioral Health Policy’s MI coding lab, in operation for over a decade, includes members of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT), and public research university MI subject matter experts. Our MI coders complete ongoing and extensive training in the Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity (MITI) fidelity instrument. ASU coders participate in ongoing inter-rater reliability assessments to ensure quality control and the delivery of consistent feedback and coaching. Our MI Portal provides you with rapid feedback on your work samples in a secure online environment.
