Motivational Interviewing Training Workshop
Dr. Bukky Kolawole is hosting an introductory Motivational Interviewing (MI) training on Thursday, May 10th and Friday, May 11th in New York City. This training is appropriate for professionals/professionals-in-training who have had no prior or some exposure to Motivational Interviewing techniques. People whose work involves helping clients achieve behavior change, ( i.e. mental health clinicians, counselors, coaches, psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, physicians, nurses, case workers, outreach workers, dietitians, therapists, clergy, personal trainers, etc.) will benefit most from this intensive Motivational Interviewing training.
During the introductory Motivational Interviewing training we will review all you need to know about the underlying theory and principles of MI. Through the use of presentations, videos, highly interactive exercises and demonstrations, the trainer will guide participants in learning the technique, style and spirit of Motivational Interviewing.
All participants in the Motivational Interviewing training will have ample opportunity to practice their motivational interviewing skills with the support of the trainer, using “real plays”. With participants consent, participants will receive individualized coaching on how to use the Motivational Interviewing OARS skills.
The training will begin at 9:00am and conclude at 4:00pm on Thursday, May 10th and Friday, May 11th.
There will be an hour lunch break each day. In addition, we will take several 10 minute breaks throughout the training.
