The sessions will build upon each other within the 4 processes of an MI intervention.
Each session will be two (2) hours in duration and participants are expected to attend all four (4) sessions for continuity of the learning process. Recommendation- Registrants must have taken either Choices and Changes: Motivating Healthy Behaviours or Brief Action Planning or Foundations of MI (Contact [email protected] for upcoming Healthcare Professionals workshops to register for Choices and Changes or Brief Action Planning trainings)
Topics Addressed in the series are:
Session 1: Engaging and Focusing Process on October 4th, 2023 from 9am-11am
This session will focus on strategic use of OARS skills; the underlying philosophy of CAPE (Compassion, Acceptance, Partnership and Evocative Spirit); identifying communication barriers and the “righting reflex” which impacts therapeutic relationship building.
Session 2: Identifying, Eliciting and Responding to Change Talk on October 6th, 2023 from 9am-11am
This session will focus on identifying and listening for any client change talk; strategies to elicit or evoke change talk within the client and how to effectively respond to change talk so the client talks more about making change(s) and determines that something needs to be different.
Session 3: Exploring Ambivalence, Raising Discrepancy and Addressing Relationship Discord on October 11th, 2023 from 9am-11am
This session will focus on strategies that can be used to explore client ambivalence about change and how to raise concerns with the client about their current behaviour. Skills on how to maintain therapeutic rapport using advanced reflective listening skills to counter/challenge the client’s thoughts about change will be explored.
Session 4: Commitment to Change, Obtaining a Goal and Developing Action Plans on October 13th, 2023 from 9am-11am
This session will focus on identifying and evoking specific client commitment language that indicates readiness for change and how HCPs can seamlessly move into the planning process to develop client centred goals and action plans.
