IFIOC‘s approach to Motivational Interviewing training has garnered national and international attention for innovation and improved outcomes for individuals and systems. Casey Jackson and John Gilbert are our lead trainers here at IFIOC. Both are members of the MINT (Motivational Interviewing Network of trainers) and together have over 30 years experience training Motivational Interviewing to fidelity. Both Casey and John have a heart for helping and both know the impact Motivational Interviewing can make on individuals and organizations when learned to fidelity.
IFIOC is on the forefront of Motivational Interviewing as we have been training on how personal values impact the change process, something that just recently the MINT network is starting to do too. We train Motivational Interviewing beyond the acronyms, allowing our participants to walk away day 1 with new skills to utilize in their day to day. Whether you train with us online or in person, we pride ourselves in creating active learning environments so each training participants take home tangible skills to try.
In 2015, the IFIOC team developed a fidelity-based tool with qualitative and quantitative metrics for coding conversations. The Motivational Interviewing Competency Assessment (MICA) is used for both quality assurance in terms of establishing baselines for person-centered conversations as well as for a quality improvement tool for achieving proficiency in MI to promote improved outcomes and sustained cultural change. While the MICA has been used on many research projects nationally and internationally, IFIOC is the licensed owner and primary author of the tool.
