Achieving YOUR outcomes with IFIOC’s Expertise, Guidance and Support
IFIOC‘s approach to Motivational Interviewing training has garnered worldwide attention for innovation and improved outcomes for individuals and systems.
IFIOC’s team has been focused on individual change for 30 years, and specifically on evidence-based change for 15 years, with all trainers being members of the international Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT).
Our Training Model
Motivational Interviewing is the method of communication, the actual language and verbal strategies, to reduce resistance and increase functional engagement with clients in a strength based change process. It teaches the practitioner how to effectively use their interpersonal skills to facilitate sustainable behavior change. IFIOC’s model of Motivational Interviewing training includes how to functionally engage the clients executive functioning that may be impaired due to trauma, behavioral health issues, or other environmental or physical stressors.
Fidelity based Motivational Interviewing has a positive measurable impact on clients, service providers, supervisors, agencies, and systems. In keeping with fidelity and improved outcomes, IFIOC follows a research guided format to training Motivational Interviewing.
Measurably shifting to client/person centered care:
- 2 day Introduction to Motivational Interviewing
- 1 day follow up Intermediate Motivational Interviewing (1 month post Introduction to Motivational Interviewing)
- 2 day follow up Advanced Motivational Interviewing (1 month post Intermediate Motivational Interviewing)
This 4 days of training over 3 months is measurably shown to shift practitioners into a patient/person centered approach to practice. After the 4 days of training, practitioners are demonstrating a person centered approach but not demonstrating fidelity to Motivational Interviewing as an Evidence Based Practice. Research shows professionals need specific fidelity coding/coaching to reach measurable “competency” in Motivational Interviewing.
