This 4-hour interactive training explores Motivational Interviewing as a strategy for working with young people. Motivational Interviewing (MI) refers to a counseling approach in part developed by clinical psychologists Professor William R. Miller, Ph.D. and Professor Stephen Rollnick, Ph.D. MI is a goal-oriented, client-centered counseling style for supporting behavior change. In this training, we will take this counseling style and apply it to working with youth. This adapted training is a very hands-on approach to supporting youth to change risky or problematic behaviors. Participants will take away tools and activities to use with the young people that they work with.
