Beyond the Basics: Recognizing and Amplifying Motivation for Positive Change

Participants will be provided with multiple opportunities to stretch their use of open-ended questions, affirmations, reflections and summaries (OARS) beyond the basics. Excellence in motivational interviewing requires recognizing and attending to client language cues. The competent use of motivational interviewing also requires one to be highly skilled in the use of complex reflections. Participants will concentrate on the processes of focusing, evoking and planning.


Providers who choose to attend this workshop will leave with an increased ability to recognize and respond to change talk, sustain talk, discordance and planning readiness. Participants will have an increase in their knowledge around how to motivate their patients to change and how to help them successfully plan for change.


Health and human service professionals and students who wish to use an evidence-based approach for facilitating change in the people they serve.


Laura A. Saunders, MSSW, MSSW Member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers
