Motivational Interviewing

Our Motivational Interviewing training explores skills critical for healthcare providers to support patients endeavoring to achieve health behavior change and is grounded in principles detailed in William Miller & Stephen Rollnick's, Motivational Interviewing, 3rd ed. Our faculty are recognized MI experts, all of whom are members of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT). 

Individuals and groups can choose from a brief introduction to MI, an academic overview of the subject in video lessons, or a certificate course that includes live online training and skills practice with peers and acting patients as well as individual coaching.

Patient-Centered Healthcare: building relationships and managing care coordination

(formerly "Integrated Care Management")

No matter where a primary care practice might be on the spectrum of integrating behavioral health and primary care, it is clear that those individuals who provide care management and care coordination are lynchpins for success.

Many members of the care team can provide these important services, but training in how to approach and apply care management with a patient-centered focus is a goal toward which successful practices are working.

Our flexible and convenient online course can be customized to fill in knowledge gaps and encourage relationship-focused, patient-centered healthcare.

Medical Group Visits

We offer live and online training in launching and managing medical group visits for primary care practices.

The purpose of medical group visits is to reduce symptoms in patients with chronic disease, reduce loneliness, increase access to care and self-management.  Medical group visits and Integrative medical group visits work well for patients who are not thriving in the 15-minute visit care model. 

Our approach is to build expertise among providers in treating groups of patients, providing them with individual medical attention while also encouraging social support.
