Motivational Interviewing for Police Champion Training – 2.5 Day Workshop

Being a MI Champion for your Agency. A champion is a practitioner that encourages co-workers to use new practices in an agency. This person does not have to be the most proficient in the use of the new method, but needs to be enthusiastic about its potential benefits. Recent research suggests that “champions” may positively influence the adoption and maintenance of MI skills within an agency. This workshop will train practitioners in techniques and help create a plan for champion activities in their agency. Trainers provide champions with follow-up consultation as part of this training course. The first two days of this workshop include the standard two day MI workshop. Request more info here
