About This Event


This event is a live Zoom training.Participants will need video and audio capabilities. Call-in not available.

Individual Login Requirement
Credentialing requirements for online sessions stipulate that all participants must (1) individually register, and (2) log into the webinar on their own computer to receive credit/hours for attending. Learners who participate in a webinar session via shared computer login will not receive a certificate.

Please note: Attending the same learning event (same session) more than once, does not meet the credentialing criteria Prevention Research Institute must follow to award hours. This does not mean that you cannot attend a CES event more than once; it simply means that doing so will serve as a personal learning opportunity only (no hours will be awarded the second time).

Session Description:

As Prime For Life (PFL) instructors and Prime Solutions (PS) counselors, we help people consider the possibility of change in their alcohol and drug choices and yet we rarely stop to consider the fundamental question, what is motivation? This session will focus on answering that question and then building on these insights, then asks an equally important question: how do we understand our role in participants motivation? Participants will learn about the motivational continuum, the three basic psychological drives contained within Self-Determination Theory, and how PFL and PS fit with these. Because learning is at its best when the learner is highly engaged, the instructor will use a dynamic blend of didactic discussion and activities to elicit participants' thinking on these core issues.
