Motivational Interviewing: Counseling for Health Behavior Change – An In-Depth Training - Nov 4, 2022
Most clinicians (of all disciplines) commonly use what is known as a traditional approach to patient counseling (getting a person to take medication, follow a diet, exercise, etc.) which involves pushing the practitioners agenda on the patient and not being sensitive to the motivation of the patient or their desire to change. We will resolve this during the training by comparing both methods and highlighting the ways Motivational Interviewing can help practitioners of all disciplines achieve behavior change with changing how we engage in those conversations.
