Motivational interviewing (MI) is a brief evidence-based technique for facilitating behavior change, including initiating services and complying with recommendations. Recent applications with families and in schools demonstrate the power of MI techniques for promoting teacher and family motivation to engage in educational services and supports. This training offers school psychologists, counselors, teachers and other school-based professionals strategies to promote engagement in and improve the effectiveness of school-based supports and services. In this introductory training, participants will learn to use basic MI techniques for a range of school-based applications. Participants also will gain an understanding of two specific applications of MI for schools, the family check-up and the classroom check up.
The workshop will include case examples, video examples, modeling, and role-plays to achieve learning outcomes.
