Overview

The ASAM Motivational Interviewing Workshop is an interactive and engaging workshop designed to introduce and expand participants' knowledge on utilizing Motivational Interviewing (MI) in an addiction treatment setting. MI is a goal-oriented, collaborative counseling style that evokes a person's own motivations for and commitment to change.

Physicians, clinicians, counselors, and all those working with patients with addiction often find that one of the main barriers to effective treatment is the patients' perceived lack of motivation to make changes. Without motivation on the patient's part, making or sustaining progress with treatment goals can be difficult. MI is one technique that treatment providers can utilize to help patients make positive changes. Participants of this workshop will be introduced to the key concepts and skills of MI and explore ways to effectively integrate MI into addiction treatment to help promote positive patient outcomes.

Clinicians working with patients with addiction who are interested in an introductory workshop that reviews the core skills of Motivational Interviewing (MI). This workshop is designed for those with little to no prior experience with MI, and for those with some prior exposure to MI. Participants of previous MI workshops who would like to continue their practice of fundamental MI skills with similar material are also welcome to attend.
