Each day builds on the prior session. MI is a terrific tool for helping people change behavior. It's an especially helpful tool for medical staff (lifestyle changes and medication adherence), therapists/counselors, Student Life advisers, supervisors and more. Learn basic, foundational skills for MI, including spirit, OARS (open question, affirmations, reflections, summaries), identifying and responding to change talk and discord. Lots of practice in "real plays" (you get to work on your own behavior changes that you are ambivalent about). While you won't be an expert at MI when you are done, you will be able to start the practice, know how to get good at it and maybe even want to learn more!
