Basic Concepts and Techniques for Clinicians Who Are New to MI
Presented by Jeff Rhein, MRC, LPCC-S, LICDC-CS
In this training, we will explore what Motivational Interviewing (MI) is and how it can be utilized in a number of situations. We will examine some reasons clinicians choose to use this technique. This training will also focus on methods that clinicians have found successful for putting Motivational Interviewing Techniques into practice. Specifically, we will learn how to use these skills in the therapy session.
