Motivational Interviewing

Presented by Laurie Young from Alberta Health Services

Motivational Interviewing is a client centered approach designed to help clients explore and work through their ambivalence to change. Learn about the spirit of motivational interviewing using the Stages of Change Model as a conceptual base, and gain knowledge of the motivational strategies at different stages of change. Motivational Interviewing is particularly useful in helping those who work with resistant clients.
