Virtual Class: Motivational Interviewing: An Overview with Application – Nov 10 & 11

Posted by Bryn Mawr College on November 1, 2022

As our systems of care become increasingly recovery oriented, practitioners need tools for eliciting individuals’ involvement in planning and implementing their own recovery strategies. Learn from Carolyn Solo, LCSW how Motivational Interviewing is one such tool you can use in your practice.


November 10 and 11, 2022, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. (CEUs and Act 48 credit)

Bryn Mawr College Graduate School of Social Work Center for Professional Development is hosting this 2-day CEU program which will address how Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based and person-centered counseling technique for eliciting and supporting behavioral change. Using a combination of lecture, discussion, role plan and video examples, this two consecutive day program will provide participants with some of the building blocks of MI for use in service practice.

As a person-centered and -driven technique, MI is inherently inclusive of diverse cultures and belief systems. In addition, teaching examples will include discussion of counselor biases and the potential impact of these on the behavior change process.

This workshop is appropriate for all levels of social work practitioners in varied practice settings.
