Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a client-centered intervention designed to strengthen the client’s motivation for change. An MI-adherent approach is critical to the successful implementation of many existing and emerging best practices (e.g. cognitive behavioral therapy, risk assessment, case management).
We offer training in Motivational Interviewing (MI) for professionals working with high-risk youth and adults. MI was developed to enhance intrinsic motivation and to engage clients in the change process. Research supports the use of MI to enhance staff proficiency in working with clients who are unwilling or unable to change.
