Learning MI

Stillpoint WV provides lots of opportunities to advance your practice in MI.

  • Online and live Practice Sessions
  • One-on-one Coaching
  • Review of Recordings
  • Coding of Transcripts

As an evidence-based approach, you can only get the good results that MI indicates if you are close alignment with MI Spirit and Skillfulness.

MI Coaching sessions involve a review of conversations via recording and transcripts.

We use the MITI and the MISC to code recordings and to assess for MI model fidelity.

MI workshops are a great way to learn about the principles and techniques of Motivational Interviewing, MI Practice Sessions are a great way to learn how to apply these techniques to real-life situations.

MI Practice Sessions help participants develop Motivational Interviewing skillfulness by practicing MI conversations in a small group setting with peer learners.

In each session, a participant presents a situation where they got stuck using MI. As a group, we start seeing what it would be like to bring an MI informed conversation to the mix. We discuss possible MI strategies, and then try them out in conversations with each other. Members reflect on their conversations and get positive feedback regarding the felt outcome of each conversation. The atmosphere is designed to be one of safety, high interest, and mutual learning.
