Basic Motivational Interviewing
This 2-hour workshop reviews a model of health behavior change – the Transtheoretical Model of Change (Prochaska, DiClemente and Norcross) with a brief explanation of the stages of change.
Participants will explore how motivation is influenced by readiness, conviction and confidence and explore clinical strategies customized to meet patients’ individual needs. Participants will review the core skills of motivational interviewing, specifically open-ended inquiry, reflections, affirmations and summaries.
Case studies are encouraged for discussion at the end of the workshop to apply the learnings to individual practice settings.
