WB 202 MI: Brief Interventions

Type: Webinar

Lecturer: Gary Rose, Ph.D

Price : $75 Per Person

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an effective, evidence based consultation style for practitioners working with clients and patients regarding health behavior change. The challenges of this work are numerous, from initial engagement, through treatment planning, and maintenance of change. Direct persuasion and other traditional methods of health education are often ineffective. This is particularly true when the opportunities to talk with patients about change are limited to a few brief moments of opportunistic conversation.

This intermediate webinar will address the applications of MI to health behavior change, with particular focus on briefer conversations about change. Building on the basics of MI, we will discuss the modification of MI techniques to fit the time-limited consultation.

Open to all practitioners in healthcare settings who had a basic exposure to MI, either through a previous training experience or through reading an MI textbook.
