Having a hard time finding an MI training in your area that doesn’t require too much time or travel?

This virtual workshop only requires you have a computer to log in to to see the information and videos and be able to remotely have conversations with those at the workshop.  I am using Zoom which makes you feel like you are actually in the room and having used this for several other workshops there is very little technical difficulties.

The 4 hours are packed with powerful information that will advance your key skills of:

  • The Four Processes of MI:  Engagement, Focusing, Evoking and Planning
  • How to pull for “change talk” versus “sustain talk” or “discord” as a key indicator of movement towards change
  • Advancing your “micro-skills” of MI:  Open-ended questions, affirmations, reflections and summaries
  • How to explore and resolve ambivalence with behavior change and pull for a client’s values
  • Exercises to increase affirmations and complex reflections
  • Generating conversations that have equal partnership, cultivate change talk, and soften sustain talk


“The online MI training was more interactive than any other online training I’ve taken in the past. Susan has put together a great set of activities that really help put the skills of MI into practice. I felt more confident with my coaching skills immediately after the training and now know what I can do to continue progressing in MI skills. The training was non-intimidating and very helpful especially for my health-coaching field of work as a Dietitian. I was very pleased to learn about M.I. with nutrition and exercise-relevant discussion examples. “

“I have taken all 3 MI classes virtually with Susan.  She masterfully delivered each class using the technology in a way that balanced lecture with  discussion and 1:1 exercises.  Questions were always welcome. The result was a very strong value proposition for maximizing learning time with other priorities.  I will take any class that Susan delivers!”

Shari Palmateer, Certified Health and Wellness Coach

“Susan’s virtual training helps you enmesh yourself into the practice and spirit of MI. It’s a great way to develop your mindset and skills for those who can’t attend a live workshop.”

Guillermo Muñoz, Health and Fitness Coach

“I’ve taken two virtual MI trainings with Susan and I cannot recommend them enough. She is incredibly knowledgeable in the field of MI and provides real-time feedback that I was able to implement with clients immediately. Prior to the trainings, she sent pre-work that helped to make the most of our time and afterwards, she sent useful follow-up materials that supported deeper learning, which I refer to often. If you are looking to expand your skills in MI, take one of Susan’s trainings!”

Amy Clark, NBC-HWC

“Susan’s virtual MI training is a great introduction to the Spirit of MI.  The virtual training made it possible to learn and practice which gave me the confidence I needed to use MI with my clients. I have attended Susan’s virtual training programs multiple times as there is always so much to learn!”
