The Training Point is a three-day course designed to enhance knowledge and abilities in facilitating trainings in general and this offering will be focused on participants who have proficient knowledge and skills of Motivational Interviewing (MI) or Screening, Brief Intervention & Referral to Treatment (SBIRT).  The Training Point is grounded in adult education theory and practice, and as such is learner-centered, experiential, holistic, authentic, expressive, reflective, social, collaborative, democratic, cognitive, developmental, constructivist, and challenging (see Zemelman, Daniels & Hyde, 1998, p. 8).

The first two days of the course provides a collaborative learning environment where participants engage in sharing and practicing training skills.  The last day of the training is dedicated to the participants utilizing what they have learned by providing a brief MI or SBIRT teach-back with a co-facilitator. You will be provided the opportunity to receive feedback from trainers and participants, complete self-assessments and be provided the opportunity to get connected with a coach for continued skill development. Participants focus on the various components that create successful training experiences: the learners, the environment, the materials, and the trainer.  Topics covered include learning and training styles, adult learning principles, facilitation and presentation skills. 

Participants are expected to have working knowledge of Motivational Interviewing (MI) and/or Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT).
