PREREQUISITE INTRODUCTORY MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING
Intermediate Motivational Interviewing

MI is primarily a way to talk with people about change however this description is deceptively simple. MI was originally developed in the late 80's as a tool to help clients engage in substance abuse treatment.

The introductory MI training is a prerequisite for this intermediate level training which will dive deeper into the nuanced ways you can use MI.
