Putting the Pieces Together

*This presentation is no longer eligible for a CEU.

In this webinar, participants will learn how to put the spirit, skills, and tasks of motivational interviewing into everyday practice. Motivational Interviewing aims to help people resolve ambivalence and move toward healthy change. Giving up substance use is incredibly difficult, and it is our job to help people find internal drivers and strengths that make that change possible. The workshop will give you the tools to help people uncover their why.
