Introduction to Motivational Interviewing



Ann Marie Roepke, Ph.D.


Zoom Webinar

How can we help clients make positive changes in their behavior – without nagging, shaming, persuading, or arguing? Motivational interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based approach to communication that can help individuals change behaviors they might feel ambivalent about, such as exercising, quitting or changing alcohol/drug use, adopting safer sex practices, taking important medications, starting psychotherapy, or pursuing other personally meaningful goals. In this interactive training, participants learn the fundamentals of MI through lecture, demonstrations, discussions, and experiential role-play exercises.

Context-informed Care

A year into the pandemic, long-standing healthcare disparities have been exposed. This seminar contextualizes Black Americans’ experiences within healthcare systems and outlines steps providers can take to offer more equitable care through end-of-life. The seminar begins with origin stories to show the breadth of Black Americans’ personal histories and provides an overview of Black Americans’ contact with mental and physical healthcare systems. The course covers common obstacles to culturally sensitive care and outlines some steps providers can take to build trust, work toward equity, and offer client-centered care.
