Vancouver, British Columbia May 5, 2017
8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (Pacific Time)
This advanced evidence-informed one-day workshop is designed for health professionals who wish to become more confident and further their skills in motivational interviewing, particularly when working with clients who seem highly resistant to change. This advanced workshop will build on the challenges that participants have experienced in implementing the introductory workshop motivational interviewing skills and will help participants become more attuned to picking up on client cues for change. This hands-on workshop includes additional practice and feedback opportunities to support the immediate integration of the new advanced tools within participants’ practice.
Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the workshop.
