Are your clients ambivalent about change and challenging to engage? Motivational Interviewing is a proven communication strategy for helping individuals undertake and maintain positive change.

When used effectively, Motivational Interviewing shifts client perceptions away from ambivalence and resistance to change — which are very real barriers toward self-directed determination and commitment to change.

This can provide valuable ‘’tools’’ for engagement and to enable families to identify and work towards the outcomes they want to achieve.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Increased knowledge and understanding of Motivational Interviewing principles and practices
  • Increased knowledge of the Stages of Change Model
  • Increased knowledge and application of OARS and eliciting change talk
  • Develop an understanding of how this model can be applied with your clients who present with resistance and reluctance and are challenging to engage

 

Who should attend this workshop?

Workers who work with, children, youth and families who are challenging to engage.
