  • Tuesday, September 18 : Motivational Interviewing for Academic Advisors

Last semester, Dr. Sheila Simons of the Health Promotion Department presented on Motivational Interviewing, which has become a key component of client-centered counseling. This Brown Bag session continues to explore how Academic Advisors can take advantage of this approach. Motivational interviewing offers a great way to build a working alliance with students. When advisors pull out their “MI compass,” advisors can guide student exploration of values and goals, develop studentʼs self-efficacy, and help students come to their own solutions.

We invite Academic Advisors and all faculty interested in using this approach more broadly to come to this Brown Bag session, where we will breakdown the key components and process of motivational interviewing, practice the basic MI skills, and develop personal MI learning plans.

Facilitator: Dave Closson

Location: MLK Union - Effingham Room
