Introduction to Motivational Interviewing: 1 Hour Webinar
April 19th, 10:00-11:00 (EST)
Motivational Interviewing is a particular kind of conversation about behavior change. Rather than advising and convincing a person to change, Motivational Interviewing is a style of communicating that evokes a person's intrinsic motivation to change, attempts to resolve ambivalence, and minimizes discord in a helping relationship.
In this introductory workshop, Kate Watson will dispel some myths about the behavior change process, present the evidence base for Motivational Interviewing, and discuss the possible applications of Motivational Interviewing in your own work.
