Motivational Interviewing: Mentor Training - FREE

Time: ​9:30a - 4:30p

To register, please select the date below.

MI is an evidence-based intervention with a proven track record of improved outcomes based on client-generated goals.  For practitioners ongoing training and coaching has been shown to dramatically improve their skills.
 
If you find MI useful in your work, this is an opportunity to expand your own skill set while helping others do the same.  MI Mentors will:

  • Learn an effective coaching model

  • Harness their "clinical" MI skills to provide ongoing peer coaching and supervision

  • Explore common pitfalls and how to coach around them

  • Practice using the toolkit provided in class to have fun and effective coaching conversations.

  • Create your own MI learning plan

 
In addition to the interactive training day, each mentor will participate in monthly supervision calls with the CODAC training team (through 2021) and receive individual coding and coaching sessions. These interactions will help you develop your own MI learning plan, share your experiences, address issues as they arise, and brainstorm coaching activities.
 
The prerequisites for attending the mentor training is completion of MI Foundations and MI Advanced and a heartfelt passion for the MI spirit.
