Course Description

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a collaborative conversation used to strengthen motivation and commitment to change through a framework for eliciting and setting goals from the client or patient. As providers incorporate MI skills and strategies into day-to-day work, the effectiveness of MI becomes apparent. This course is for a broad spectrum of health and service providers working with clients and patients who have opioid or other substance use disorders. However, the core MI information taught in the course is applicable across a broad spectrum of needs and issues (ex. smoking cessation, health concerns, relationships, major life changes). The content is evidence-based, versatile and can be used for anyone working with those focused on improving their life.

If you have questions about the certificate program, please contact Jennifer Donahue at jennifer.donahue@temple.edu

 

Course Outline

This course is made up of virtual live sessions and online self-paced modules. Registration and payment will prompt access to Module 1 via Canvas. Completion of Module 1 will prompt Zoom meeting link access before the training dates for the virtual live sessions, which are Modules 2 and 3. Completion of Modules 2 and 3 will prompt access to Module 4 via Canvas.

Module 1: (1.5 hours online, self-paced)
Why Motivational Interviewing for SUD and OUD?

This module conveys the depth of the opioid crisis while offering an opportunity to learn about the most up-to-date research on substance use disorders. It will introduce you to a process you may have experienced within your own personal story of change. Module 1 will help you transition from reacting to external pressure to change to setting a path based on an internal desire for things to be different. The stages of change will be considered as a means of knowing how to “meet the client or patient where they are at.”

By the end of this module, participants will be able to:

  • Recall three facts about the effects of opioids on the brain;
  • List four goals of Motivational Interviewing;
  • Summarize Motivational Interviewing and explain how it applies to your work with individuals with SUD and OUD;
  • Recall five stages of change;
  • Apply five principles of Motivational Interviewing.

 

Module 2: (3 hours live virtual)
Module 3: (3 hours live virtual)
Motivational Interviewing: Theory and Application for Change

These modules are designed for health and service providers who want to expand their knowledge and skills in MI. This training will bring MI to life through examples, lecture, role-play interactions and other strategic activities that will transfer skills, techniques, theories, style and the spirit of MI for training participants to use with clients and patients in need of change.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the Spirit, Principles and Processes of MI;
