Motivational Interviewing Foundations Online Course
This online course for between six and 12 participants focuses on building an understanding of the spirit of Motivational Interviewing and developing core skills, including OARS (open-ended questions, affirmations, reflections, and summaries), responding to how people talk about change, helping people make Brief Action Plans, and understanding ‘resistance.’
Although a minimum of six individuals are needed and must start the course at the same time, most learning content and activities are self-paced and can be completed individually online with scheduled virtual interactions with the course trainer and other learners. For 12 weeks after the course, learners receive a series of weekly emails with resources and examples, prompting them to practice a specific skill in their interactions that week and then check in with a study partner or team. Sponsors receive updates on participant progress.
This is an interactive skills-based workshop. Instructors use learner-centered, performance-based approaches to adult education.
Please note that a free, non-interactive online Motivational Interviewing training is also available on the TA Marketplace.
