Motivational Interviewing:
The Language of Change with Dr. Stephen Rollnick
It was the worst session of my life...
In the early years of my career, before I helped develop Motivational Interviewing, I was put in charge of a group of young alcoholics. One evening, a patient known to all of my colleagues as being notoriously resistant in the group treatment environment walked in and sat down. He said nothing.
At the end of the session he left, went home, and shot his wife and himself in front of two children.
In the years that followed I asked myself many serious questions about how we can truly care for our clients; especially our clients that challenge our skills as a therapist and make us feel as if we are failing them. These questions led to new treatment strategies that became the foundation of Motivational Interviewing: a powerful, evidence based practice that enables us to escape the pattern of struggling with clients and instead evoke our client's own motivation to change.
Now I want to teach you step by step how to integrate Motivational Interviewing into your current treatment strategies and increase your positive outcomes.
In my online intensive course, Motivational Interviewing: The Language of Change
I will give you the tools you need to improve your work with your most challenging clients.
Imagine the satisfaction you will feel knowing that your client's transformation stems from your new skills to elicit their own motivation to commit to lasting change.
I look forward to seeing you in the course.

Motivational Interviewing: The Language of Change with Dr. Stephen Rollnick
In this six-module video course, you'll learn step by step from Motivational Interviewing co-founder Dr. Stephen Rollnick how to refine your communication style to increase positive outcomes with your clients. Through lecture, client vignettes, analysis, and discussion, you'll learn to use a compassionate, curious effort to elicit your client's own arguments for change.
Module 1: The Foundation & Essence of MI
Through lecture and discussion, you'll explore the foundations of MI with Dr. Stephen Rollnick. During a video interview with the co-founders of MI, you'll take an in-depth look at the unique and essential aspects of MI and start refining your guiding communication style.


Module 2: MI Framework & Skills
This module comes from a workshop on MI and contains a mixture of stories, lecture and detailed discussion on the skills involved with MI. You'll watch commentary featuring MI co-founder William Miller, Ph.D., and Dr. Rollnick discussing the four fundamental processes of MI.


Module 3: MI & Mental Health—3 Clients
Through three client vignettes, you'll explore the heart of Motivational Interviewing. You'll also take a closer look at how Motivational Interviewing works in an interview with the co-founders of MI: William R. Miller, Terri Moyers and Stephen Rollnick.
Module 4: Demonstration and Analysis
This module starts with the pre-recorded illustration of the four processes using a unique opportunity provided by a past workshop participant. This series of unrehearsed simulations allows Dr. Rollnick to describe a case and proceed through a session while allowing breaks for discussion when beneficial. You'll also view interviews with the MI co-founders discussing developing discrepancy and exploring motivation to change.


Module 5: Observing the Practice of MI
This module provides an opportunity to observe numerous counselors and how they apply MI to their practice. Each video will be followed by commentary from Dr. Rollnick where he will showcase how each therapist infused MI with their practice, personality and style.


Module 6: Challenges and Opportunities
In the final module, you'll take a hard look at the signals of discord in clients. You'll then learn ways to respond with care, not confrontation. Throughout the module, you'll view simulated client videos featuring the founders of MI working with actors to demonstrate examples of consistent MI use during a session as well as inconsistent use during a session.

Here's what others have to say...
...about Dr. Stephen Rollnick's intensive online training:
"I appreciate Rollnick’s backstory about his disillusionment with traditional confrontational treatment (spurred on by a tragic client loss) and then how he found so much value in MI. I’ve experienced how guiding makes an immediate difference for me and for my clients,supervisees—even friends and family. That’s why I’ve been so adamant about training coaches in MI skills… I’m always looking for ways to make MI SIMPLE enough and yet compelling so my trainees are ready to practice it, so I’m appreciating these videos!"
