About the event

In-person supervisor trainings allow individualized attention and feedback. Receiving this level of instruction provides supervisors with an opportunity to strengthen their motivational interviewing skills and to learn how to apply them to situations with the providers they oversee. This training would teach those supervisors how to more effectively support MI in their system as well as with their staff for individual and/or group supervision.
