Description: Motivational Interviewing is a style of interaction that is client-driven and supports individuals in the healing and change process. There is significant research in the health, education and criminal justice fields that supports the use of motivational interviewing in addressing the needs of victim/survivors and offenders, providing support and helping to facilitate change. Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a trauma-informed interviewing/interacting technique that focuses on creating supportive, meaningful and strategic conversations. During the webinar, you will gain understanding of the context of evidence-based practices within which to have these conversations and leave the participants with practical skills to engage in short and effective conversations to initiate, or facilitate, the process of behavior-change and effective support. These skills are valuable, effective, and are considered an evidence-based practice in criminal justice.
