Motivational Interviewing (MI) in Action: Integrating MI Across Your Agency
Wednesday, December 8, 2010 | 1 to 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time
How can an agency integrate MI across all levels of the organization? Join presenters from Bridgeway Rehabilitation Services in Elizabeth, NJ, a grantee of SAMHSA's Projects for Assistance in Transition From Homelessness (PATH) program. Participants will learn how Bridgeway created an implementation plan for teaching, supervising, and supporting MI in community-based services.
Buddy Garfinkle and Nancy Schneeloch will share lessons learned and offer strategies for integrating MI into the daily work of an agency, sustaining the practice, and teaching and supporting MI through staff supervision. They will also discuss how MI affects program outcomes.
What is MI? It is a collaborative, person-centered approach to elicit and strengthen motivation to change. It offers providers a useful framework for being with and interacting with people who are experiencing homelessness or struggling with substance use, mental illness, and traumatic experiences.
