Introduction to CMI


Welcome to the online training program in Comprehensive Motivational Interventions (CMI). CMI is a set of highly structured, evidence-informed, stepped-care self-management support tools and techniques based on the principles and practice of Motivational Interviewing and behavior and health system change.

Overview of Methods, Media and Time Commitment
“CMI Core Competencies,” a course developed by Steven Cole with contributions from Mary Cole, Damara Gutnick, and Connie Davis, will teach you eight basic competencies to use “Brief Action Planning,” (BAP), a practical motivational and self-management support technique for everyday practice. The course consists of approximately eight hours of multi-modal learning: online self-directed reading; three online interactive quizzes with feedback for incorrect answers; three high definition annotated video demonstration of skills; and three real-world field exercises to practice and consolidate skills.
