About the Course:

This course is designed to help counselors who work with American Indian/Alaska Native people honor their clients’ history and traditions as they apply the Motivational Interviewing approach to counseling and the Stages of Change theoretical model. The Stages of Change model describes the stages of successful intentional behavior change and their application in a wide range of clinical settings. The research upon which this course is based has shown that the Motivational Interviewing approach is successful with clients who suffer from substance abuse, mental illness, and other health behavior disturbances.

The course manual contains all of the relevant information presented in the course, which will explore the use of these concepts in an integrated framework that retains its relevance whether the practitioner works with individual clients in a clinical or brief contact setting, group settings, or seeks to incorporation these concepts within or across cooperating community agencies.
