Sign up for the next Peer Leadership Institute In-Person Training: Motivational Interviewing (MI): The Skills Peer Providers Need to Know!

Motivational Interviewing (MI) for Peers is a six-hour training designed to teach the fundamental concepts of MI specific to the needs of peer workers. Using examples from jobs familiar to peer workers – navigation, welcoming, linkage and advocacy – the training will address the primary philosophy and approach to the practice.  Concepts and skills covered include: understanding the necessary attitude and approach for successful engagement; processes of MI; and the core interaction techniques. Additionally, peer workers will receive skills on recognizing, eliciting and working with “change talk” and how to use “change talk” for better patient/consumer outcomes.
