Coding and Coaching: Using the Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity (MITI) and Motivational Interviewing Competency Assessment (MICA) Evaluation Tools: Fall 2021

About this course

Ready to take your Motivational Interviewing (MI) skills to the next level? Want to learn to evaluate motivational conversations and frame effective coaching feedback? Looking to integrate high yield observation and coaching into your communities of practice?

This fast-paced and highly interactive virtual workshop will introduce you to applying both the Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity (MITI) and Motivational Interviewing Competency Assessment (MICA) coding and coaching instruments to support your own and others’ MI skill development. The MITI helps identify utterances or behaviors inside the conversation, and the MICA focuses more on conversation flow. For evaluating your own and others’ conversations, as well as forming feedback, this course will help you use both instruments—and allow you to compare their relative usefulness for different needs.

Who Should Take this Course:

  • Those who
    • Have completed a recent introductory or advancing skills workshop in MI
    • Want to improve their MI skills
    • Want to help others improve their MI skills
    • Are looking to strengthen an eventual application to the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT)
  • Quality improvement and auditing professionals
  • Supervisors
  • Key Leaders or Managers implementing MI
  • Community of Practice leaders and members

Learning Objectives:

As a result of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Assign codes to utterances within a motivational conversation
  • Assign technical and relational global scores to a conversation
  • Identify micro-skills in a conversation
  • Rate strategies and intentions within a conversation
  • Form coaching feedback shaped by coding evaluations
  • Identify ways to integrate coding and coaching into communities of practice
