Motivational Interviewing Learning Journey Level 1 Workshop 4 Establish Rapport, Expressing Empathy, Reflection (READS)Self Study Video-Enduring Material
The WBT course is the first part of the learning journey and will introduce learners to an overview of Motivational Interviewing or MI. Each learner is at different levels of exposure and competency when it comes to Motivational Interviewing. To account for this, learners are asked (as part of the WBT) to complete a brief 10 question assessment to help in assigning the appropriate journey for their learning needs. Placement is dependent on two factors: Learners current role and placement score. The journeys are tailored to help familiarize them with how MI relates to them and their role.
Learners who have completed the Motivational Interviewing Learning Journeys Overview Web-Based Training Course and assessment are assigned to their appropriate Learning Journey Level. The Learner should follow this Learning Journey over a span of six months, attending monthly 2-hour virtual instructor-led training sessions and completing the activities associated. Content each month will build upon the last workshop, and by the end, the goal is for the learner to have a comprehensive understanding of Motivational Interviewing and how they can use it in their day-to-day role, which ultimately results in a more positive interaction with our members.
