Available: https://www.amazon.com/Motivational-Interviewing-Schools-Conversations-Applications/dp/1462527272

This interactive, guided online book study provides a forum for school leaders to explore, in theory and practice, motivational interviewing (MI) as a practice to improve behavior and learning. Over a four-week period from June 4 to 29, participants will become familiar with the skills of MI and application to K-12 student conversations about behavior change.

What is MI? It is a style with a set of skills used to have conversation in which the student voices the case for change.  MI comprises skills and strategies that can make brief conversations about any kind of behavioral, academic, or peer-related challenge more effective. Extensive sample dialogues bring to life the "do’s and don'ts" of talking to K–12 students (and their parents) in ways that promote self-directed problem solving and personal growth.

Each week participants will be expected to complete the assigned reading, respond to one or more prompts posted by the facilitator on the group’s Moodle, andengage with co-participants in discussing the application of motivational interviewing in the school setting.

Participants in the online book study will:

  • Week/Part 1: Define motivational interviewing; discover the 4 processes, practice evoking, and utilize the E-P-E framework for providing information.
  • Week/Part 2: Show how the skills of MI can improve conversation outcomes with students and parents.  Discuss traps to avoid including the righting reflex.
  • Week/Part 3: Take a closer look at the application of MI to four situations, bullying, working with at-risk students, dropout prevention, and post-secondary transitions.
  • Week/Part 4: Plan how to practice and develop your MI skills; and how you might integrate MI in your schools.

In today’s schools, care for the person/s harmed through misbehavior is rarely addressed in intentional ways. Misbehavior is punished leaving the student to feel disconnected from school and at times also feeling like a victim. When misbehavior is not addressed in a restorative manner the focus of academic learning is broken. Working through Restorative Practices, misbehaving students deal with the harm they have caused to individuals and to the school community. An understanding of the harm done and a restoring of safety or relationships starts to happen and the emphasis of learning in a caring environment can resume. The goals of Restorative Practices apply not only to those involved in or affected by misbehavior, but to the larger educational community as well.

Key Goals of Restorative Practice:

  • To understand the harm and develop empathy for both the harmed and the harmer
  • To listen and respond to the needs of the person harmed and the person who harmed
  • To encourage accountability and responsibility through personal reflection within a collaborative planning process
  • To reintegrate the harmer (and, if necessary, the harmed) into the community as valuable, contributing members
  • To create caring climates to support healthy communities
  • To change the system and why it contributes to the harm

Day 1—Participants will have an understanding of: Restorative Practices—where its roots are from and how it is being used today. Punishment vs. Restoration—Where are you on the discipline continuum?  The four paned window of conduct. Values and Concepts of a Restorative School Environment—How does your school check out?

Day 2—Participants will have an understanding of the “practices” in Restorative Practice and how they fit into a continuum (think triangle in PBIS) —Types of Restorative Practice: Reintegration following suspensions, Class meetings, Circles, Conferencing, Truancy mediation, Bullying
