NEW!! Virtual four-session clinical development (coaching in MI) by Skype

Have you been wondering how to improve your Motivational Interviewing (MI) skills but your centre hasn’t offered (enough) follow-up? You think you’re doing good MI but you would like to be sure and get some help on certain aspects? dancing gecko training is happy to introduce a four-session clinical development (coaching in MI) series in English to help you move forward with your MI practice.

The series is comprised of four two-hour monthly sessions, held via Skype and facilitated by Dr. Rachel Green, Ph.D., psychologist and member of Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers.  Each group will be limited to 6 participants who will meet together each month.  Participants are strongly encouraged to submit one recording of actual client interventions, recorded with due consent, per session (if you need a consent form, please send me a request or download it from the website).  Members of the group will participate in the discussion of each recording, a discussion which will be strength-based—critical comments will be offered only by the person submitting the recording and the facilitator (as needed).  The discussion will be anchored by the Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity (MITI) tool (a validated measure of the worker’s MI intervention) as a framework, taking into account behavior counts and especially the global measures.

OBJECTIVES:

Participants will:

  1. Have identified their strengths in their MI practice;
  2. Have identified and targeted where they most need improvement;
  3. Have practiced MI and received feedback specific to improving that practice;
  4. Have developed effective strategies to transform sustain talk into change talk.

These development sessions are recognized by the Order of Quebec Psychologists for 8 hours of credits for continuing education for psychologists and psychotherapists.

Time: to be determined according to the availability of the group

Mode: Skype

Requirements:

  • Must have a Skype account
