Do you feel restricted in helping clients and shelter residents with questionable motivation? Are the concepts of motivation, resistance, ambivalence and compliance confusing? This course examines motivation as an interactive process between client/resident and counsellor, providing a variety of practice tools to address key issues in counselling and support situations. Special emphasis is placed on working with people who are more “resistant.” This approach has been successfully applied in the area of addictions. Workshop content includes: principles of motivational interviewing; building motivation for change; dealing with resistance; and understanding strategic tools that can be used in brief interventions. This training is interactive, and all attendees will be required to participate.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- List the key principles and strategies of MI.
- Practice and apply the four essential opening strategies with clients.
- Identify approaches to clients who are resistant to change.
