Motivational Interviewing (MI) Academy (Summer Institute pre-conference) on Monday, July 16, 2018 from 8:30am-4pm & Tuesday, July 17, 2018 from 8:30am-3:00pm. This academy is a unique intensive workshop that includes multiple opportunities for participants to practice MI skills and receive individualized mentoring and feedback. Academy participants will learn and improve their MI skills through use of videos, real-plays, exercises, and scoring of recorded clinical sessions. Training participants can track their MI proficiency and skill development via the new MyMI web portal. Upon completion of the Academy, and submission of two work samples, participants will receive a completion certificate demonstrating their individualized MI proficiency level.

Motivational Interviewing is a client-centered, goal-oriented method for enhancing intrinsic motivation to change by exploring and resolving ambivalence. Studies on learning motivational interviewing have shown, individual coaching and feedback contribute substantially to the enhancement of MI skills (Miller, Yahne, Moyers, Martinez, & Pirritano, 2004; Schwalbe, Oh, & Zweben, 2014).
