Based on research in both Motivational Interviewing and Technology Transfer, this would include a 4-day training series: the 2-day Introduction to Motivational Interviewing with a subsequent 2-day Advanced Motivational Interviewing approximately one month after the initial training. Research shows that there is no sustained application of MI skills when participants attend a single day or several day training on Motivational Interviewing. What research does reflect is that if the initial training is followed-up with multiple ‘booster’ trainings that discuss integration and focus on skill development, that participants show sustained skill acquisition at follow-up reviews. While there is notable sustained skill acquisition, research reflects that participants are not applying MI with fidelity as an Evidence-Based Practice. The literature shows this is acquired through ‘coding’ and coaching using the Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity (MITI) scale.
