Event Details

Interested in learning a way to communicate with your child/teen which fosters collaboration and motivates positive change?

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a technique used in some psychotherapies, but the basic principal (people want to be healthy) can foster parent/child connection and encourage kids to make difficult positive changes. The founder of MI describes it as "a collaborative conversation style for strengthening a person’s own motivation and commitment to change.”

This training will provide an introduction to the spirit and principles of MI and will give participants an opportunity to experience some of what makes MI different from other approaches.

 

Presenter:  John Brelsford, PhD, LMHC.  John is a member of MINT (Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers) and has been offering training in Motivational Interviewing for the past 6 years.  John currently has a therapy practice in Easthampton and has over 40 years of experience in human services fieldworking people with serious psychiatric and substance abuse disorders.
