As one of the largest groups of mental health care providers in the country, social workers have made a huge impact on clients’ lives by using motivational interviewing (MI), an evidence-based communication technique that’s used to drive behavior change. Motivational interviewing skills can be especially impactful when used in Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) — a public health approach to the delivery of early intervention and treatment to individuals facing addiction or those who are at risk.

What’s the best way to practice motivational interviewing techniques? How can social work educators help their students gain valuable communication skills?

Join us for an engaging webinar where we’ll review:

  • The importance of motivational interviewing in social work
  • The sixth competency outlined in a curricular resource on SBIRT that was created by NORC at the University of Chicago in collaboration with the Council on Social Work Education
  • An introduction to Kognito’s evidence-based simulations (with a live demo!)
You’ll have the opportunity to experience the power of simulation during a live demonstration. A Q&A session will follow.
