Motivational Interviewing: Helping Clients Make Meaningful Changes

Robert Scholz

Robert is a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist and Professional clinical counselor with over 20 years of experience. Robert spent a decade at Pepperdine University serving as the assistant director of their counseling center and coordinator of their alcohol and drug program. He is an expert on the topic of motivational interviewing and member of the motivational interviewing network (MINT) of trainers.

One of the most challenging clinical encounters for psychotherapists occurs when working with clients struggling to find intrinsic motivators for change. Motivational interviewing (MI) offers hope by providing a practical, evidence-based approach that helps enhance client motivation, often leading to an increased likelihood clients will make more meaningful and sustained behavioral changes. This interactive, skill-enhancing and fun one-day workshop will provide participants with an overview of the theory, principles and skills of MI, as well as offer psychotherapists a road-map of how to develop deeper expertise in the MI model.
