Unfortunately, most cases of chronic diseases faced in medical settings are preventable through changes in behavior (e.g., smoking cessation, weight loss, healthy diet, physical activity, taking medications as prescribed). Because such health behaviors are predictors of decreased health risk, health behavior change is an important element of our work with patients. MI is an evidence-based and strength-based conversation style that helps people resolve ambivalence and increase commitment for making a behavior change.
ICHCA will be providing four (4) cohorts of Motivational interviewing (MI) trainings over 2023. Each cohort will begin with a 4-hour Motivational Interviewing training and be followed by six (6) 1-hour trainings. Each cohort will be targeted toward a different health center audience, adapted based on the needs of those present: Clinical Staff, Outreach, Supervisor, and Behavioral health staff and others looking for more advanced MI training.
