It is common for people to struggle and experience ambivalence when considering making a change or when others may be expecting them to make one. When those working in helping roles encounter this ambivalence in their clients, it is often interpreted as resistance and they may feel unable to respond in an effective way. By exploring the framework and strategies of Motivational Interviewing, this webinar will provide new ways to facilitate the change process in the people they work with. Participants will learn strategies that start from a place of empathy and draw on the client’s personal motivation to create their own goals for change.

- Describe the guiding philosophy and essential elements of motivational interviewing (MI)
