This workshop is designed for participants with previous training and experience using MI in clinical settings.  Newer users of MI will likely struggle to participate fully in practice exercises for this advanced workshop.  If you are in doubt, we can discuss this with you individually.  We encourage international applicants, recognizing that the workshop requires a facile working knowledge of English.

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?

The original founder of Motivational Interviewing, Dr. Miller’s distinguished career has spanned five decades, pioneering methods to inform how clinicians treat and respond to their clients.
