This training will cover specific motivational interviewing techniques with the adolescent or adult cannabis user. In this evolving culture of legalizing MJ, this client has become one of the most difficult in the area of motivation for abstinence. General motivational interviewing techniques will be covered for the beginner to moderately experienced clinician, as well as how to apply these techniques to the cannabis using population. Lecture and case studies will be the mode of delivery.
