(30 minutes session)

As social service agents, we often wonder: are we making a difference? How can we facilitate change? In this session, we will discuss how we can encourage healthy lifestyle changes among our clients with the use of motivational interviewing (MI), an evidence-based approach to behavioral change. We will learn about the core principles of MI and how this person-centered approach can help build your client’s motivation for change. Attendees will also hear how we used motivational interviewing to successfully help individuals create smoke free homes. After this session, attendees will have a better understanding of motivational interviewing and how they can be agents of change.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn what motivational interviewing is and is not
  • Understand the core principles of motivational interviewing
  • See motivational interviewing in action
  • Learn how to engage clients
