MI Booster Session #1 – 8:00 – 11:30 am

Booster Session #1 is for participants who wish to increase their rapport and active listening skills by way of strengthening their MI Spirit elements and OARS skills. Special attention will be given to enhancement of reflections.

This MI Booster will focus on boosting the following three specific areas of MI skills through various role plays and small group activities by:

  1. Enhancing the natural use of MI Spirit, particularly partnering and empathizing with clients to help build rapid rapport and trust.
  2. Deepening the use of open questions and affirmations within conversations about behavior change to evoke a higher level of self-efficacy within clients.
  3. Increasing the ratio of reflections to questions to a 2:1 ratio to assist in achieving a higher level of active listening to allow the client to feel heard and understood.     An emphasis will be placed on the increase of complex reflections versus simple reflections.

This MI Booster will focus on boosting the following three specific areas of MI skills through various role plays and small group activities by:
