Motivational Interviewing is an effective, focused technique to help people make change in their lives. Concrete techniques are introduced and practiced in small groups and the majority of the day is spent in role play and other interactive activities. 

This session includes:

  • Stages of Change, a way to understand why people feel “stuck,” suggestions on how to respond based on their level of readiness, and how to manage your own expectations

  • Factors that may keep people in unhealthy patterns and ways to have open, respectful conversations about their motivation and readiness to do something different

  • Harm reduction and its strategies: small steps to help people be safer

  • Finally, this session incorporates training on the Brief Negotiated Interview, an evidence-based intervention developed at the Boston University School of Public Health and Boston Medical Center that has been shown to be an effective tool for brief sessions on behavior change.
