This intermediate level course is designed for students and practitioners who have some training in Motivational Interviewing (MI) and have applied basic skills with a client population.  Building upon the Spirit of MI and understanding of ambivalence and stages of change, the course will explore ways of responding to challenging conversations and focusing conversations. Using advanced moves with the basic strategies of Open Questions, Affirmations, Reflections, and Summaries, we will practice tipping the scales of sustain talk to the direction of change talk. Training activities will focus on understanding the role of trauma and trauma-informed care during assessment and planning phases, giving advice in an MI-adherent style, and supporting clients for action steps toward their goals. Participants will also learn about the role of trauma in conflict and responding to upset and angry clients. We will approach MI content from a trauma-informed perspective, combining trauma informed approaches with MI for working with marginalized populations.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Apply the OARS skills in a way that reduces client sustain talk and increases change talk;
  2. Demonstrate skills for focusing a conversation about change and prioritizing among competing topics;
  3. Practice giving advice in an trauma-informed MI-consistent style;
  4. Illustrate how to respond to relational discord.
  5. Practice moving through the stages of a MI conversation, from engagement to planning.

Research: Select current research on MI can be found at US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health

Target Audience: social workers, mental health practitioners, creative arts therapists, marriage and facility therapists, psychologists, addictions professionals, and other interested individuals
