Course information

The Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) is offering a two-day evidence-based workshop on Motivational Interviewing for behavioral health providers working with Service members and veterans.  The workshop will be held online via Zoom, 8-9 September 2022, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Eastern. Space in this event is limited and registration will close when capacity is reached, even if this is before the final registration deadline. 

Also, a functioning microphone is MANDATORY to attend, in order to participate in the role-play sessions. Headphones are also HIGHLY recommended to provide the optimal experience.

This intensive two-day workshop provides skills training in Motivational Interviewing (MI), which is a collaborative conversation style for strengthening a person’s own motivation and commitment to change (Miller & Rollnick, 2013). The workshop will review the foundational constructs related to MI with an emphasis on the Spirit of MI. Participants will practice fundamental client centered counseling skills (OARS+I) across the four processes of an MI encounter (Engage, Focus, Evoke, Plan). The workshop will articulate when it is appropriate to use MI skills in a clinical encounter with a focus on health behavioral changes. Videotaped examples of MI sessions will be used to demonstrate therapist skills. Participant participation in real-plays to demonstrate MI skills and attendance at both days of the workshop are required for training completion. Participants will leave the workshop with a personalized plan to continue MI skills practice and reflective feedback.
