MIP is a holistic behavioral intervention for
reducing high-risk behaviors for infection and transmission of HIV
among intravenous drug users (IDUs). The intervention is theory-driven
and intensive, combining individualized counseling and comprehensive
case management over a 3-6-month period. The strategies of motivational
counseling, self efficacy, and role induction are used.
Prerequisites for Training
interested in participating in a MIP training of facilitators (TOF), it
is strongly recommended that participants have prior experience in
motivational interviewing and stages of change theory. All registered
participants will receive a survey to document their prior experience
in Motivational Interviewing. Priority will be given to individuals who
demonstrate prior course work and/or experience in Motivational
Interviewing and stages of change theory.

activity. The intervention researchers and developers are not involved
in this activity. This is a CDC requirement for their grantees, and all
questions in this regard should be directed to your agency's CDC
Project Officer or to the health department funding your agency's
