The Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion host­ed a webi­nar, Moti­va­tion­al Inter­view­ing: Lever­ag­ing Tech­nol­o­gy and Youth Voic­es to Train Staff, on Oct. 5, 2023. The webi­nar dis­cussed train­ing staff to use moti­va­tion­al inter­view­ing to more effec­tive­ly engage with the young peo­ple they serve.

Moti­va­tion­al Inter­view­ing is part of the Casey Foundation’s Lead­ing With Evi­dence series, pro­mot­ing effec­tive and equi­table evi­dence-based approach­es in a vari­ety of settings.

The webi­nar is an oppor­tu­ni­ty for non­prof­it and pub­lic sys­tem pro­fes­sion­als to learn about a new train­ing inno­va­tion the Foun­da­tion helped sup­port. A trove of youth inter­views help prac­ti­tion­ers in the effec­tive use of moti­va­tion­al inter­view­ing, a prac­tice that employs com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­niques designed to engage young peo­ple and adults. The process has been shown to help youth gain a greater sense of self-worth and aware­ness as they devel­op into thriv­ing young adults.

Pan­elists will dis­cuss why and how they are using this tech­nol­o­gy to train staff.
