Hello educators!

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is coming to schools and colleges and you are at the forefront. This website is under construction.

Once complete it is intended to be an international resource to educators and will have resources to help teachers, administrators and other staff working with students learn MI, adding one more tool to your toolbox for making your interaction with students one that helps them be more intrinsically motivated to change in positive ways. It is an evidence-based, strength-based approach that students appreciate because it honors their autonomy.
