Description

COURSE PREVIEW

Why won’t my patients just do what I tell them to do? For most of us, the challenge to engage and activate patients/families in their own health is both real and real important.

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based communication style that focuses on language, both the clinician’s and that of the patient. The strategies of MI are collaborative and evocative and an overall goal is that change arises from within, rather than being imposed from without.

Join us for a highly interactive workshop to build your skills in motivational interviewing and effective behavior change. You will be guided through a variety of learning activities designed to explore and practice new ways of transforming your conversations with patients and families. Learning activities will include live demonstrations, video examples, 'real-plays', case studies, small group exercises, and participant practice with feedback.

KEY TOPIC AREAS

  • How health behavior change happens
  • Why ambivalence matters
  • The value of language, both yours and the patient’s
  • Why the ‘Righting Reflex’ and 'Fix It' thinking don’t work
  • Building intrinsic motivation for change
  • Working with challenging behaviors
  • Providing information and advice effectively
  • Change talk, sustain talk, reluctance, and resistance
  • Evidence-base for Motivational Interviewing in health care
  • What to do when time is short
  • ...and much more!!
