2018 MINT TNT Application  
Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Purpose of MINT's Annual TNT Workshop? 
The TNT workshop is designed to help skilled MI practitioners enhance their MI training skills. It is also currently the only pathway to become a Member of MINT. 

What are the expectations of a TNT Applicant?

  • You are proficient in delivering MI and can demonstrate the range of MI-specific skills in a 20-minute interview with a standardized patient. 
  • You are able to articulate the initial and ongoing learning process that you have engaged in to develop and refine your MI skills;
  • You have received feedback, coaching and/or supervision, as part of ongoing MI learning;
  • You have some experience with providing MI Training (recommended, but not required).
What if my first language is not English? Can I still apply to the 2018 TNT? 

All Written TNT Applications must be submitted in English. The Standardized Patient interviews will be conducted in English. If English is not your first language, this will be taken into account in the coding. If you have any questions regarding language issues and the SP interview contact mint.tnt.coding.2018@gmail.com 

How many applicants will be accepted into the TNT? 

The first 120 applicants (3 groups of 40) who have been accepted, and who have paid the 3-day registration fee will be admittted.  A short waiting list may be retained in the event that an Approved Applicant withdraws prior to the beginning of the training.  Please carefully read and follow all the application INSTRUCTIONS, as not following instructions is one of the most common reasons for delayed application review.


What happens after I submit my application? 
Your complete application - Written Application Form, MITI-coded SP interview, and SP Self Reflection Form - is sent to one of our teams of reviewers, who are current Members of MINT located all over the world. The review time can take up to 8-10 weeks. 

If I am accepted? 
If your application meets all criteria satisfactorily, you will receive a notification of your acceptance via email. You will also receive your MITI-coding feedback, which is intended to reinforce and strengthen your MI practice. 

You will receive a Welcome to TNT email with instructions to secure your place in the workshop, special hotel booking link, financial assistance information, and an invitation to attend the MINT Annual Forum at a special reduced rate for New Members. 

What if my application is not accepted? 
You may appeal a decision of "non-acceptance" within 7 days by submitting an appeal letter to the TNT Coordinator.

If I my application shows areas that I need to strengthen, can I apply again next year? 
Though the decision of the MINT Board of Directors regarding the outcome of the application shall be final for the 2018 application cycle, we encourage you to use the feedback we offer and make another application next year. 

What if I am accepted this year, but I cannot afford to pay for the 3 Day Workshop? 
MINT has a Public Service Fund especially for those who have financial hardship but want to attain the many benefits of becoming a Member of MINT. The information regarding the PSF and how to apply for funding will be included in your Welcome to TNT email.  

What if I am accepted this year, but a personal conflict prevents me from attending the workshop? 
We believe that your application means that you fully intend to attend the 2018 TNT in New Orleans. However, we understand that circumstances beyond your control may prevent this from happening: personal or family illness, extraordinary life events, financial limitations. etc. In these cases, it is important to notify us immediately that you cannot attend. Refunds may be issued if eligible. Your status as an Approved Applicant will be extended for up to two years. You will be exempt from the application process and allowed to register for the 2019 or 2020 TNT.
