PainBC BAP Training Resource Page

-Welcome PainBC BAP candidates to your resource page, below you will find videos, slides and documents to aid you in your training in Brief Action Planning (BAP). More attributes are to be added to this page as we progress through the courses together, so please watch for updates periodically.

Once we have completed the final webinar and you have completed your two practice calls (details coming soon), I will post a link to the BAP certification appointment scheduler and you will be ready to go for certification.

BAP certification demonstrates a trainee’s competence in BAP skills through a structured and recorded interaction with a Standardized Patient. The recording is scored by a coder using a standardized rating scale. The rating scale emphasizes conversational tone, flow of the interaction and adherence to the Spirit of Motivational Interviewing in addition to demonstration of the BAP skills. Successful candidates join an International Community of Practice and receive monthly newsletters and invitations to monthly webinars.  We strongly encourage all of you to attain certification for these reasons. The certification appointments are one on one with a CCMI standardized patient who plays the role of the patient while you interact with them as the clinician using BAP. The interaction is recorded and the results are scored. Once certified you will become a member of the BAP Community of Practice and have access to a number of resources on our site.

On behalf of all of us at CCMI thank you for your interest in Brief Action Planning, we wish you success in your training in BAP.

April Lawrence, MA Planning, Co-Active Coach

April is CCMI’s content expert for Engagement. She works to ensure multiple stakeholder voices are part of improvement projects. She engages staff, providers, executives, patients and service users with equal ease, though engaging more vulnerable, less-often engaged client populations is her passion and expertise. By designing relevant, safe and accessible engagement processes she ensures that fewer resources need to be devoted to creating “buy in” later because collective ownership of the proposed change can be created from the very start. April also designs and delivers training to support better communication for providers, patients and teams.

All Webinars as Facilitator:





Troy Cobb, Program Assistant

Based in Boise Idaho, I help facilitate CCMI’s client interactions.  On a day-to-day basis this usually means managing our database and coordinating interactions between our internal staff and our ever-growing community of Motivational Intervention practitioners.  Working remotely, I am afforded the freedom to live in a place that I truly enjoy; the high peaks, forgotten hot springs, and empty trails of Idaho refuel my passion for the outdoors every time I return to them.  May our paths cross one day whether it be on an email trail or on the dirt single tracks of the Rocky Mountains.
