Creating Shared Goals with Motivational Interviewing
Wednesday, December 3, 2-3 pm EST/11 am-Noon Pacific
Register now: https://goto.webcasts.com/starthere.jsp?ei=1049082%20
Motivational interviewing is an effective communication tool to help people living with mental illness, addictions, and other chronic conditions to make positive behavioral changes to support their overall health. Instead of a one-way, directive approach, motivational interviewing provides a framework for creating a dialogue about behavior change. As a health care provider (and in many other contexts, too), you can use these tools to create conversations that empower the people you serve to make meaningful changes.
Learn the core aspects of motivational interviewing, why it works, and how you can use it to create conversations of change in your organization.
Presenter: Pam Pietruszewski, Integrated Health Consultant, National Council for Behavioral Health
