This FREE training is being offered through a partnership of Region V Systems and the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Behavioral Health.

Regular booster trainings are necessary for continued retention and growth in the effective communication skill of Motivational Interviewing (MI). On January 19, 2023, Region V Systems will be offering two boosters, attendees can choose to attend one or both sessions.

Morning MI Booster – 8:00 – 11:30 a.m.

What is New to Motivational Interviewing?:  Explore the Changes to the Practice of MI from the Newly Released 4th Edition

Motivational Interviewing has grown over time to be one of the most widely used and broadly applied communication skills to foster motivation to assist in changing behaviors. As an evidence based practice, the creators and researchers of MI are dedicated to supporting changes in the application of MI to grow as well. This booster will focus on such growth and application changes. Participants will be refreshed to come away with a deeper, yet simpler, understanding of MI and the new and improved changes that have been applied since the release of the 4th edition August of 2023.

Afternoon MI Booster – 1:00 – 4:30 p.m.

Improving the Application of MI Skills:  Building Confidence in the Application of MI

Learning and applying MI skills takes time. MI trainers often relate the learning process of MI to that of learning a new language. In order to become and maintain proficiency in MI, continual intentional practice and feedback is key. This booster will foster such growth and confidence in participant skills in MI by creating small group buildable conversations and feedback sessions as well as rotating observation sessions.

NOTE: This training IS NOT an introductory training to MI. Boosters assume attendees have had previous MI training, therefore, an extensive REVIEW or introduction of skills is not offered. Booster training sessions are not appropriate for someone who does not meet the above prerequisites.
