Motivational Interviewing - REGISTER NOW

Presented by April Morrison & Jessica Park, Cooperation for Supportive Housing (CSH)

Motivational Interviewing (MI), developed by Miller and Rollnick (1991), is based on the idea that clients are most likely to change when the motivation comes from within rather than being imposed from the outside. Case managers can use MI to improve engagement and assist their clients in working toward their self-identified goals. Workshop participants will learn basic MI principles and spirit and gain experiential knowledge.
