Yes, if you attend the live class, you will be able to ask questions to the presenters during the course. You will also be able to email and interact with the presenters if you want.
After having run this virtually several times now, we have realized that it is very important for both the participants and the presenters that everyone have their cameras on for the duration of the course. We understand that there are sometimes extenuating circumstances that make it difficult for someone to keep their camera on. If you have an issue, please feel free to contact us for accommodations.
There are readings, which are provided to you. There is no homework for this course.
In this clip, you'll see a bit of Dr. Ken Carpenter talking about Motivational Interviewing. This is a preview of what you'll learn in this course from leading clinicians and trainers in the field.
This is a great opportunity to round out your graduate school education and help you learn skills for your future.
