Course Description:

Join us for an introduction to Motivational Interviewing where we will explore how to enhance our conversation style with clients as they contemplate change. We will discuss topics such as how to explore ambivalence, roll with resistance, and elicit change-talk. Learn how to work within the Motivational Interviewing spirit where showing a genuine interest in the client’s perspective leads to further collaboration.
