Leaders should implement evidence-based practices that support their staff

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a communication approach that helps staff to effectively and efficiently serve their clients. Whether you represent a small practice, a mid-sized firm, or a large scale agency, MI training may have several benefits for your organization. LDI knows how to provide MI training in ways that lead to successful implementation. Increasingly, more options are available for effective MI training to fit your organization’s needs in terms of content, budgets, and time constraints. Examples of MI training topics include:

  • Introduction to MI
  • Advanced MI Skills Training
  • Communication Skills – OARS
  • The Four Processes Of MI
  • Mindset of the MI Practitioner
  • MI Summaries
  • Client Engagement
  • Responding to Client Resistance

How we can help with your MI needs

An often underutilized step in the process, a needs assessment can elicit input from administrative and front line staff to identify needs, potential barriers, and solutions that result in staff buy-in and long-term gains.

E-learning is an efficient option for teaching introductory topics, providing baseline knowledge, and illustrating concepts using hosted videos. We have already developed and successfully implemented a comprehensive eLearning system called MI-INTRO, that can be quickly scaled and customized for your organization.An often underutilized step in the process, a needs assessment can elicit input from administrative and frontline staff to identify needs, potential barriers, and solutions that result in staff buy-in and long-term gains.

Instructor-led training allows for demonstrations, role-playing, and dynamic experiential training experiences. We employ a wide range of training activities that allow your staff to observe, experience, and practice skills related to the use of MI in the workplace.

Blended learning allows for deeper understanding of a topic. It includes both e-learning (to provide knowledge) and classroom instruction (to provide practice with hands-on application).

Effective long-term implementation may require additional coaching. LDI provides web-based and in-person coaching services as needed. We can also document staff proficiency utilizing structured evaluation procedures, and, if required, establish a certification process.
