Basic MI Virtual Classroom Training via Zoom. Rather than do voice over PowerPoint or simply record a training, we decided to use as much of the virtual classroom as possible. The result is a unique interactive learning experience which encompasses live classroom via Zoom, large group activities, breakout rooms, handouts, polling, whiteboard and individual coaching.
Learn on your schedule, as a group, or as an individual. We offer one of the most in-depth learning experiences available today. We’ve broken the practice of Motivational Interviewing into twenty (20) interactive online courses that allow you to continue to learn and perfect techniques and strategies related to the practice of Motivational Interviewing. Group skill building workbook available at no additional cost.
We also offer 5 Motivational Interviewing courses directed at helping supervisors and managers create better environments for coaching staff. This extensive series of five (5) interactive online courses in the MI approach is the only one of its kind in available today.
In Person Training
Motivational Interviewing – Basic
The participant is introduced to the “spirit”, history, processes and fundamental skills of Motivational Interviewing through lecture, role plays and a diverse training presentation.

Participants will have the opportunity to practice their new skills during this one to two-day session.
Motivational Interviewing – Advanced
A review of the Basics, plus a workshop to improve upon reflections and complex reflections. The advanced training also brings the full spectrum of Motivational Interviewing to a conclusion by means of creating a sample interview recording which can then be evaluated for further skill-building in the practice of MI. Often, feedback and evaluation are done remotely which essentially extends the training into an indefinite period beyond the classroom.
