Motivational Interviewing for Marijuana Use Prevention- Webinar Course
May 28, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Presented by: Stephen Andrew, LCSW, LADC, CCS, CGP
This six-hour intensive webinar will provide an introduction to this evidence-based style of communication – Motivational Interviewing (MI). After an orientation to the underlying spirit, structure, and skills of MI, practical exercises will be used to help participants strengthen empathy skills, recognize and elicit “change talk”, and roll with the discord/resistance.
Participants will experience the efficacy of MI and the importance of it in working with substance use/misuse prevention with the focus on the human-to-human relationship.
MI is a person-centered, goal oriented method for enhancing intrinsic motivation to change by exploring and resolving ambivalence. MI has emerged as one of the most critical and effective screening, brief intervention approaches when working with people to promote behavior change, especially misuse/abuse of marijuana.
