Using Motivational Interviewing Strategies and Techniques To Help Patients Change Risky/Problem Behaviors
09:00AM - 04:30PM
Anyone working with children and families in Broward County
This full day workshop will teach attendees motivational interviewing (MI) skills to work more effectively with their clients. Initially developed for resistive substance abusers, MI has been adapted to address other health behaviors and conditions. MI is a collection of strategies and techniques from existing models of psychotherapy and behavior change. A key goal is to assist individuals who are ambivalent or low in readiness to change. MI techniques and strategies will be demonstrated using role-play, videotaped clinical vignettes, and case examples. Participants will learn how to use decisional balancing and readiness rulers to evaluate and promote readiness for change.
