Fall Member Meeting: Motivational Interview Workshop
September 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT$15
Join us at our Fall member meeting for an interactive Motivational Interviewing (MI) Workshop led by expert MI trainer and coach Dr. Ellen Glovsky!
Dr. Glovsky is a registered dietitian that specializes in motivational interviewing for health behavior change and uses these techniques in her own practice with eating disorder patients. In Dr. Glovsky’s words: “Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a set of skills for those who work with people to change their behavior in a positive direction. MI is grounded in the spirit of your relationship with your client, and emphasizes collaboration, acceptance, autonomy, and compassion. It is about clients convincing themselves to make changes to their lifestyle to improve their health, reduce stress, and live in a way that aligns with their goals and values.”
This interactive workshop is designed for professionals at all skill levels including those who have little to no experience with MI, want to refresh their skills, or gain a new perspective on MI techniques. Participants can expect to leave the training with an understanding of motivational interviewing basics and will have the opportunity to practice the relational skills and techniques for helping clients decide if, when and how they will change.
