PROGRAM OUTLINE

Enduring client change is achievable through Motivational Interviewing (MI). MI is the powerful evidence-based method for engaging intrinsic client motivation. Clinical trials on use of MI in all areas of treatment abound with substantial outcomes for creating sustainable change in maladaptive behaviors far beyond compliance.

The method is proven to be fully compatible with various approaches as a method that helps people resolve ambivalence toward change through discovery of intrapersonal motivation by placing complete responsibility for change on the individual.

With public and private agencies under increased scrutiny to deliver on promises through evidence based practices, executives must evaluate practices, techniques and programs to improve results and financial outcomes. Motivational Interviewing has applications in various settings giving staff skills to help their clients succeed through appropriate evidence based practices.

Program Goals and Objectives

This program teaches foundational concepts, strategy and techniques involved in MI and how it can be developed and utilized dynamically in targeted settings. It is excellent for staff with little or no knowledge of the MI approach as well as those already implementing the model. Joyfields Institute MI programs are taught through presentations, video examples, instructor modeling, and practice breakout activities. Moreover, instruction is diversity sensitive. 

Participants will recognize that many of the techniques are part of their current practice. With that recognition and the training, they will be able to begin using the techniques with more effectiveness and added fidelity to the model.
