Using the Motivational Interviewing Competency Assessment (MICA): Fall 2019

Using the Motivational Interviewing Competency Assessment (MICA): Fall 2019

About this course

Description 

The MICA was developed to assess competence in MI and provide a quality improvement process for practitioners to cultivate their use of MI intentions and strategies. The MICA allows coders, coaches and/or practitioners to form easily digestible, structured, specific feedback along the dimenions of the MI intentions and MI strategies. Unlike other coding tools, the language of the MICA is more directed to helping practitioners cultivate and express their MI intentions and is not as "utterance-focused." Instead, the MICA focuses on helping practitioners convey MI intentions and skills conversationally.

This fast-paced, interactive course will introduce participants to the MICA and provide multiple practice opportunities to evaluate conversations along five MI intentions, two MI strategies, and two utterance categories. Participants will learn how to use the MICA for coaching purposes to help MI practitioners facilitate effective motivational conversations. Participants will engage in learning through webcasts, written materials, audio recordings, exercises, and practice opportunities.
