Foundations of Motivational Interviewing
Date: Friday, November 8 and December 6, 2013
Time: 8:00am – 12:00pm, Central Daylight Time
Patients are complex. What motivates one person doesn't motivate another. And sometimes it feels like the right health choices are right in front of them, but they can't seem to move forward. How can you help? Attend our two-part workshop this fall, one of ICSI's most popular educational offerings.
Motivational interviewing is patient-centered, and utilizes a guiding style to engage with patients to clarify their strengths and aspirations, evoke their motivation for change and promote autonomy in decision-making. This workshop includes a mix of didactic presentation, videos and hands-on practice. Handouts are provided so attendees can leave with practical tools for future review and ongoing practice.
New Format! Two Half-day Sessions to Accommodate Your Busy Schedule
This two-part format gives you the opportunity to go deeper, with time for practice in between sessions and build on what you've learned.

Register by Thursday, October 31. Please contact Emily Mallen with questions about the program.
