This live interactive webinar series is a deep dive into the nature of motivation and its link to helping people change addictive behaviors.
We will discuss evidence-based elements of motivational approaches that are effective in treating addictive behaviors. We will discuss the Stages of Change and what you should focus on in each stage. The Stages of Change model helps professionals individualize their engagement strategies with different clients. No more “one size fits all” approach.
This webinar draws from SAMSHA’s updated TIP 35* and other primary sources to teach the most up-to-date treatment approaches. Using an instructive teaching style, we will discuss fundamental theory and skills. We will also break out into small groups to discuss how to integrate the information into your agency or practice.
These webinars are live and interactive. You can ask questions and communicate with the presenter and other participants. Instructor uses high quality professional audio and video equipment to make your experience as smooth as possible.

- Participants will develop a better understanding of evidence-based motivational approaches.
