Motivational Interviewing for Academic Advisors

This session will provide an introduction to motivational interviewing, as well as the key components of this approach towards helping students work through ambivalence around topics that could be hindering their academic performance, including low engagement, low academic self-efficacy, and poor time management. There will be a discussion of skills, how you can apply them to your work, and an opportunity to practice.

After completing this workshop, learners will be able to:

  • Identify the components of the MI spirit
  • Identify two ways you can work components of MI into your advising practice
  • Identify ways to use MI with college students

If you require interpreting services, please contact as soon as possible.
