Using Motivational Interviewing Skills in Supervision

Enroll in the Online elf-Study and complete training on your own schedule.
1.5 CE Credits available for behavioral health clinicians

Motivational Interviewing (MI) skills are not only a useful technique when working with clients, they are effective as a tool in clinical supervision as well. Supervisors who have been previously trained in MI will have the opportunity to dust off your skills and apply them to clinical supervision. 

For the supervisor who has no previous training in this model, you will come away with an introduction to some basic skills in MI and learn how applicable they are to your supervision practice. We will review when to use MI in supervision and when other supervision styles are recommended. Supervisors will also be taught how to integrate MI with the supervisee's stage of development.
