This introductory evidence-informed one-day workshop is designed for health professionals who wish to acquire applied motivational interviewing (MI) techniques to use with clients in their day-to-day practice. Participants will learn how to build motivation and transition that enhanced motivation into a strengthened and real commitment to healthier behaviours using a unique intervention approach which integrates MI with other impactful behaviour change practices. Participants will explore different ways to use such elements as presence, compelling questions, reflective listening, change talk, tagging values onto desired behaviour changes, and moving with resistance in service of their clients’ health-related behaviours in lifelong care. This hands-on workshop includes lots of practice in interviewing dyads followed by discussions and integrations into professional practice.
