Creating Safer Spaces: Using Motivational Interviewing to Enhance Advocacy (2.0)

A core aspect of offering survivor-centered services is supporting survivors to make individual choices about their families and goals. Motivational Interviewing, an empathic approach to conversations around change,  promotes this by focusing on self-efficacy and internal motivators while maintaining an environment of understanding focused on goals of the survivor’s choosing. This training session will offer an overview of Motivational Interviewing (MI)  as well as hands-on experience employing this advocacy tool. With recent shifts in federal regulations to require voluntary services, MI can also be a great tool to assist in meeting these new requirements and creating positive discussions about available services!
