Compassion and Motivational Interviewing Training

For Health Care Clinicians and Staff

Managing chronic pain with opioids can be one of the most stressful challenges that clinicians experience. These encounters often boil down to critical conversations with patients about their pain, pain medication, and behaviors around them. In this unique two-session training series, participants explore and practice the skills of motivational interviewing and clinical compassion to foster more effective and less stressful conversations with patients.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the Session One training participants will:

1.  Know the fundamental dimensions of compassion
2.  Listen with compassion and empathy
3.  Approach aberrant behavior in a compassionate way
4.  Differentiate between advice-giving and motivational interviewing in the context of chronic pain.

 


 

 About the Trainings:

Registration does not guarantee entrance into the training(s). 

Registrants will be reviewed and confirmed by the dates indicated for each training.  
Attendance priority will be given to prescribers

Session One is a 3-hour training which will introduce participants to the skills of motivational interviewing and clinical compassion and how they can be applied to patient care.

For participants interested in a more advanced experience, the Session Two full-day training will provide in-depth opportunities to explore and practice.

Participants can sign up for just the Session One training if they like, however, attendance at the Session One training is a prerequisite for the Session Two training.
