1 Day Motivational Interviewing Training with Dr. Jonathan Fader

In Partnership with Silver Hill Hospital

at The Martin Center, New Canaan, CT

Dr. Jonathan Fader is a Motivational Interviewing trainer and is part of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT). He trains internationally on M.I. and is a co-author of the book Coaching Athletes To Be Their Best: Motivational Interviewing in Sport

Dr.  Fader is a licensed Clinical and Performance Psychologist known for his work with the New York Mets, New York Giants, and first responder groups like the New York City Fire Department (FDNY). Dr. Fader is also the co-founder of Union Square Practice, a mental health center in Manhattan.

Who is this training designed for?

This day-long Motivational Interviewing training is appropriate for professionals and professionals-in-training who have no prior or limited exposure to Motivational Interviewing techniques.

People whose work involves helping clients achieve behavior change will benefit most from this intensive MI training. Such disciplines include, but are not limited to, psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, physicians, nurses, case workers, outreach workers, dietitians, therapists, clergy, personal trainers, and probation/parole officers.

What?

During the training, we will review all you need to know about the theory and principles of MI. Through the use of presentations, videos, and demonstrations, Dr. Fader will guide participants in learning the technique, style, and spirit of MI.  

All participants will have ample opportunity to practice their Motivational Interviewing skills with the support of Dr. Fader using “role-play,” “real play,” and the help of a standardized client (an actor trained to play a client who will give participants feedback on their MI technique during the practice interviews). Participants will learn how to use the Motivational Interviewing OARS skills.
