FREE WEBINAR: Motivational Interviewing – Strategic Patient Engagement and Reflective Listening

October 22, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This will be a rebroadcasting of the recorded webinar with LIVE audience question and answer.

The workshop engages participants using principles of motivational interviewing in the teaching methodology to build participants’ motivation to use and familiarity with the technique of motivational interviewing in clinical practice. Real play and other practical exercises will give participants the experience to implement the motivational interviewing approach immediately into their practice. Participants will practice informal coding of an interaction followed by review and discussion to learn how to identify factors that facilitate the motivational interview, and how to gauge success by learning to listen for change talk.
