Motivational Interviewing Training in Buffalo, NY

This week we offered out a second Motivational Interviewing workshop for the WNY Coalition for the Homeless.  Case managers from a variety of local agencies came together, including practitioners from 211 Info, Catholic Charities, and Best Self.  Here's some of what they had to say:

“I gained valuable insight to how MI would work in my agency.”

”When I get back to work, I can’t wait to try focusing (agenda mapping) and advice giving (elicit-provide-elicit).”

”I appreciated how great the presenters worked off each other and spoke loud and clear.”

”I am more confident now that I can listen more and give less advice.”

”One thing that surprised me was that listening first leads to better goal setting.”
