The CMI online training program focuses on the 8 core competencies of Brief Action Planning (B.A.P.), a practical motivational tool for everyday practice. The course includes1-2 hours of self-directed learning, 3 real-world field exercises to practice skills and 3 quizzes to confirm knowledge mastered. For medical practitioners, the course is accredited by the Stony Brook Office of Continuing Medical Education for 8 hours of CME. Because the 3 field exercises involve real-world practice of skills for behavior change over time with the course participant himself/herself in “real-play,” with a colleague/friend and with a client or patient (if possible or desired), completing the course usually takes about 6-8 weeks for maximal mastery of knowledge and skills.
Workshop Learning and Coaching
The Centre for Comprehensive Motivational Interventions (www.CentreCMI.ca) provides
workshop learning and individual coaching of skills related to Brief Action Planning.
The Centre for Comprehensive Motivational Interventions (www.CentreCMI.ca) provides formal certification for competency in Brief Action Planning with a short 10-minute telephonic test using a simulated patient exercise. In our experience, most clinicians require some workshop learning or between 2-6 hours of individual coaching in addition to the online learning program to achieve certification in BAP.
At the present time, “Advanced CMI,” covers 13 additional skills to help you motivate individuals with chronic complex problems and persistent unhealthy behaviors.
You can also receive individualized telephonic training by a certified CMI Coach.
