2-Day Building Skills in Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a “collaborative conversation style for strengthening a person’s own motivation and commitment to change.” MI arose from the substance misuse treatment field and has spread throughout health, behavioral health, and human services including the homelessness/housing arena.

Join Ken Kraybill, from t3, a training institute within the Center for Social Innovation, in this two-day training. Attendees will learn about the relevance of MI to your work, the mindset and heart-set of this approach, the four processes that guide MI conversations, the four core skills used in MI, and how to use these skills strategically to strengthen motivation to change. There will be ample opportunities throughout the training to practice the skills and strategies of MI.

Next training will be January 8th and 9th 2019.

Day 1 and Day 2 will be at: S. Seattle Community College-Georgetown Campus (Conference room 122)

6737 Corson Avenue S  Seattle, Washington 98108 from 9am – 4pm.

Please contact the organizer (or melissa.espinoza@kingcounty.gov) if you have already attended an Intro session with Ken Kraybill and are interested in only attending Day 2. Limited seats will be available for Day 2-only sessions.
