Requirements for Program Certification

No certification is required.


Pre-Service Staff Training

The CAMI counselors received 2.5 days of pre-service training. Each counselor was videoed delivering a session, and the interview was assessed using the Motivational Interviewing Process Code, a measure used to evaluate an interviewer's proficiency with the technique.


In-Service Staff Training

Group meetings were held biweekly for the first four months of the demonstration project during which the motivational interviewing consultant reviewed CAMI sessions recorded by the counselors.


Training Materials

Training materials are included in a program replication kit that is available through Sociometric Corporation’s Program Archive on Sexuality, Health, and Adolescence (PASHA), a collection of replication kits for implementing programs designed to reduce teenage pregnancy, HIV/AIDS, and other sexually transmitted infections in adolescents.


Qualified Trainers

A motivational interviewing consultant provided training for CAMI counselors.


Technical Assistance

Technical assistance is not available.
