Motivational Interviewing Training

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based approach of talking with people about behaviour CHANGE. The FASD Prevention Program promotes the use of MI as the most effective, nonjudgemental way to talk with girls and women about their alcohol use before they are pregnant and during pregnancy. These conversations can help to prevent Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. MI is also a very useful approach for making other health changes (e.g., diabetes management, quitting smoking, exercising). Using MI has the following benefits:

  • Helps people consider their own reasons for change
  • Decreases a person’s natural resistance to change
  • Improves outcomes for people, since they decide what to change and how to make the change
  • Decreases staff burnout – clients ‘own’ their issues and decisions instead of staff feeling like they ‘own’ them and have to fix or solve issues

This 2-day training is a hands-on, skill development workshop that will provide participants with a solid foundation of MI principles, and an opportunity to practice MI communication skills and strategies.
