Description

  • Learn by doing! Practice MI skills and add them to your clinical toolbox
  • Improve treatment outcomes by inspiring client’s own motivation to change
  • Combine MI with other treatment modalities
  • Apply MI skills in any situation requiring change!

Participate in this intensive conference and get the latest Motivational Interviewing (MI) techniques by MI founders Drs. Bill Miller and Stephen Rollnick. Join experienced MI trainer, William Matulich, Ph.D., member of the International Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT) and learn how to integrate MI skills into your practice.

MI is proven to be effective for common clinical problems such as addiction, anxiety, depression, dual diagnosis (substance abuse), externalizing problems in adults, disruptive behavior disorders in youth, unhealthy lifestyle choices and other self-defeating behaviors.

MI provides a structure that gives responsibility back to the client for change, relieving you of that assumed “burden.” Once your clients make a commitment for change, you will be more successful in providing support and improving treatment outcomes.

During this conference, you will learn the critical skills and processes that make MI more accessible and useful in your everyday clinical practice.

Dr. Matulich will use demonstrations, case examples, role-plays and more to teach you the essential MI skills that your clinical practice is missing to help your clients change.
