University at Buffalo


The University at Buffalo Motivational Interviewing Center provides high-quality training, consultation, and implementation support services to UB, the greater Western New York Community, and beyond. These services include presentations, workshops, and coaching, as well as support for learning communities, educators, researchers, and administrators. Service packages are developed collaboratively to address the goals, preferences, and available resources of our clients, with an emphasis on long-term support of learners and organizations.

We work with training clients locally in the Buffalo area, across New York State, and nationally. Recent trainees have included interdisciplinary groups of graduate fellows in a behavioral health training program administered by the UB School of Nursing, interdisciplinary care management teams at Great Lakes Integrated Network, infant toddler mental health consultants working with Early Care & Learning Council, counselors, other staff, and supervisors at the New York State Commission for the Blind, counselors and supervisors at Northpointe Council, and centralized access point resource specialists at three systems affiliated with the Help Me Grow national network. More information about our work can be found in a recent story published in UB’s faculty/staff online newspaper.
