This training provides a trauma-informed framework for building relationships and helping people make behavioral change. Motivational Interviewing or MI provides a set of best practice approaches and strategies to guide how we structure our interactions and set up programming. This training builds off the concepts presented in Matt's books Connecting Paradigms and Talking about Trauma & Change that help avoid retraumatization, facilitate tough conversations, and assist those with trauma in making difficult behavioral and life changes.
For those in the medical professions there is an option to choose an additional course that takes the approaches presented throughout this training and focuses on best practices that support treatment adherence and health literacy.
The 90-Minute version is a great training for those looking to understand the foundations of trauma-informed communication and Motivational Interviewing. It gives the curious learner an introduction to the concepts of trauma-informed Motivational Interviewing.
