This 90-minute online training focuses on key skills and concepts in motivational interviewing with adults and adolescents. Importantly, it also covers recent changes made to MI as a model of change during the past three years. MI is a client-centered counseling method for exploring how and why a person might change, and is based upon a guiding style. Its principles and techniques match those known to produce positive outcomes with sexual abusers (e.g., Marshall, 2005). MI can be very useful for motivating adolescents who are ambivalent about change and ambivalent about engaging in treatment.

Areas covered include:
* Demonstration of skills
* Specific application with adolescents
* Educational videos
