Description

  • The “NEW” Motivational Interviewing! - Don’t miss the changes released by MI founders, Miller and Rollnick!
  • Apply Motivational Interviewing to real-world clinical issues
  • MI skills to quickly improve your client treatment outcomes

Do you have clients who:

Can’t seem to get started on making positive changes in their lives or begin but get bogged down?

Can’t quite find their direction or stop focusing on how others are to blame for their situation?

Resist nearly everything offered in support of helping them make their lives better?

All of these are common challenges across a range of settings, populations and clinical concerns.

Motivational interviewing has emerged over the past two decades as a leading approach for addressing a core clinical concern - motivation.

Incorporating the latest Motivational Interviewing developments, this workshop focuses on the key elements that can transform your practice to escape struggling with clients and make real change in people’s lives.

  • Learn how the MI process works and its application in different clinical situations
  • Discover why friends and family often contribute to motivational challenges that clients experience
  • Identify and avoid some traps that well-meaning helpers can fall into
  • Recognize how to thread the needle and help clients find new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving

Join Motivational Interviewing expert, Chris Wagner, Ph.D., for this action-packed day and learn how to effectively focus clients’ attention on embracing change and successfully anticipating and surmounting obstacles they face as they pursue it. You will leave this workshop inspired and prepared to help your clients get unstuck and begin creating more fulfilling lives.
