“Learn to live by the principles of PICNIC: positive instant consequences and negative instant consequences, as taught to me by Dr. William Miller, founder of Motivational Interviewing.”
- Monty Roberts

This 2-day program Monday, July 9th through Tuesday, July 10th will introduce participants to the basic concepts of Motivational Interviewing, a client-centered method of working with others to help them resolve ambivalence about behavior change.

Motivational Interviewing closely parallels the work of renowned horseman, Monty Roberts whose non-violent approaches to working with horses and people has reached around the globe.
