Motivational Interviewing: Advancing the Practice

July 2021 – September 2021

“The individual is like a garden to be tended, not a machine to be repaired”–Stephen Andrew, MI expert

This project will offer experienced coaches the opportunity to gain exceptional motivational interviewing training.  Over the course of a three-month period, this cohort of experienced recovery coaches will work directly with ATTC’s & HETI’s nationally renowned and hand-selected trainers.  They will work both in group and individual training sessions to increase and refine their motivational interviewing skills.  

  • The training will be for 20 experienced coaches (supervisors and also center directors encouraged to apply!)
  • The 20 hours of training will fall over the months of July-September (calendar is below)
  • Recovery Vermont will offer a training stipend for each of the coaches whose applications are accepted. 
  • Coaches will leave with an Advanced Motivational Interviewing credential, as well as CEUs they can use towards their Recovery Coach Certification
  • If you are interested, or if you would like to nominate one or two people from your center please have them fill out the application below. Application deadline is June 1st. 
  • Please note that filling out an application does not guarantee applicants a spot in this program.
