Learn Motivational Interviewing with the most in-depth training series to date. Demonstrations and interviews illuminate the underlying principles, tools, techniques, and strategies that will enhance your skills in leading clients through the change process.

Motivational Interviewing, originally developed by William Miller as a person-centered approach to working with addictions, has been widely used in fields as varied as healthcare, education, and criminal justice.

DVD One: Core Concepts of MI

Victor Yalom interviews Cathy Cole about the Core Concepts; video clips are added to illustrate key concepts/techniques. An interview with a client is included showing a range of use of MI skills.

DVD Two: Increasing Importance

Sarah is a college student of mixed ethnicity required to complete counseling after an infraction of the college alcohol policy; in this two part interview she completes some self measures about her alcohol use and discusses her thoughts on the use of alcohol.

Holly is reactive to the news that her daughter is overweight and considers what she might do to make some changes.

Fred, an African American, is a rising senior in high school and is considering dropping out; he is engaged in a discussion of future goals.

DVD Three: Resolving Ambivalence

Jim is uncertain about making a job change; the use of the client centered skills of MI in a situation of neutrality is demonstrated.

Holly, from dvd one, is trying to decide about stopping breastfeeding; information helps her move to a decision that will work for her.

Kathy, a senior citizen, does not want to stop smoking but comes to the conclusion that she should.

DVD Four: Building Confidence

Janet, an African living in the United States, focuses on her confidence to start an exercise program.

Julie, a teenager, wants to make a plan for healthier eating.

Vance, a young adult, needs to make a plan for a budget.


“…I rate these training DVDs highly. Cathy Cole, a counsellor and psychotherapist, takes the trainee through each stage of this style of working using case studies and live interviews, all set against a theoretical backdrop. The DVDs provide trainees with an opportunity to understand core concepts of motivational interviewing and to practise its foundational skills.
…I recommend these DVDs to all psychotherapists and counsellors working in the field of addiction or with individuals who have been unable to make sustained change. The training is high quality and a good investment.”
