Self Paced Online Learning MI with Adolescents (available on an ongoing basis)

Choose from our 4 NEW online courses and learn how to get results by partnering with adolescent clients in ways that validate and empower them.  Here are more details:

MI Core Concepts

In this course, Sebastian Kaplan, PhD demonstrates how to successfully apply MI  in 4 individual and family sessions with 2 thirteen-year-old girls.  

Marley's falling grades and increased truancy and Katie's self-harming behavior in response to bullying have brought them into a therapist's office. Watch as Kaplan demonstrates how to use MI to manage risk, deepen rapport, and draw out his clients’ innate strengths. This video also offers in-depth commentary, in which Kaplan openly discusses his frustrations in session and then shows how to work with them to clinical benefit.

In addition to an overview of Motivational Interviewing (MI) and its application to adolescents, you will learn how to bring parents into the clinical picture and discover helpful tools for working with your own internal responses to a client.

This course is an excellent resource for clinicians who want useful strategies for Motivational Interviewing, adolescent therapy, or family-based interventions.

MI for Adolescent and Young Adult Health Behavior

Learn how to effectively support and empower adolescents dealing with health concerns using Motivational Interviewing skills and techniques.

In this course, MI trainer Cathy Cole, LCSW,  outlines the basic principles of MI known as the "MI Spirit "and together with colleague Nikki Cockern, PhD, demonstrate how to apply these principles in 4 sessions with high school and college-age teens dealing with serious health issues: HIV, weight management, Type 1 diabetes, and risky sexual behavior.

Covering the four MI processes, change talk and sustain talk, and “the righting reflex”—our natural yet ill-advised urge to “fix” our clients—Cole emphasizes the method’s nonjudgmental, client-centered nature.

In sessions with Sean, Carlotta, Olga, and Missy, you’ll observe how to use MI to manage risk, communicate nonjudgment, deepen rapport, and draw out your clients’ innate strengths. This video also offers realistic commentary, in which Cole discusses both the successes and the challenges of each session and how to work with your own “righting reflex” to clinical benefit.

You will see why MI is so widely adopted in health-care settings and how its spirit of collaboration reduces resistance and promotes adolescent interest in change.

MI for Adolescent Substance Use

Working with adolescents can be challenging enough without adding substance use issues to the mix. When teens’ age-appropriate desire for autonomy gets compromised by substance use and addiction, it can be difficult for clinicians to effectively navigate heightened levels of client ambivalence alongside their own “righting reflex”—their desire to fix their clients.

In this compelling new course, Sebastian Kaplan, PhD, and Ali Hall, JD, demonstrate how to manage these elements using tools from Motivational Interviewing, a client-centered alternative to traditional, often confrontational addiction treatment. Here, you’ll discover how to deepen rapport, diffuse resistance, and draw out adolescent clients’ intrinsic strengths.

Learn strategies to engage teenage clients who do not even want to be in your office, much less receive treatment, through clinical demonstrations with three adolescent clients using marijuana, heroin, and opiates. Develop your skills to support adolescent clients, without conveying the disrespect they might expect from adults in authority roles.

This course is a must If you’re seeking resources for teens, addiction and recovery, or client-centered counseling.

A roundtable discussion provides a model for ongoing peer coaching.
