Bringing Recovery Supports to Scale Technical Assistance Center Strategy (BRSS TACS) Webinar
Thursday, April 9, 2015 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM (EDT)
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a collaborative, person-centered form of guiding to elicit and strengthen motivation for change. It is a way of working with people to assist them in accessing their intrinsic motivation to change behaviors that contradict their essential values and interfere with the achievement of their life goals. Motivational Interviewing is both a philosophy and a set of strategic techniques. It is an evidence-based practice with a broad range of applications.
"Motivational Interviewing for Peer Support Providers" introduces participants to the philosophical roots and essential constructs of the model. In this webinar, participants will learn about a brief history of Motivational Interviewing, the four elements of the mind-set and heart-set of MI, the four processes that guide MI conversations, core interviewing skills of MI, and how to recognize and elicit change talk.
Recovery Community Organizations and Peer-run Organizations will describe models of incorporating MI into training and certification of peer workers. This will include supervision strategies using MI techniques to model effective motivational enhancement for individuals providing peer support in the behavioral health workforce.
Peer support workers will gain an understanding of how MI skills are used strategically in conversations with peers in their work settings. Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a vital best practice for workers of all disciplines in mental health, substance abuse and homeless services. MI is defined as “a collaborative conversation style for strengthening a person’s own commitment and motivation to change.”
