Monarch Motivational Interviewing Workshop for Physical Therapists / Physiotherapist Alliance ~ 14 September 2019 ~ 9:00am to 4:00pm, Stratford, Ontario

This is a full-day Monarch System motivational interviewing workshop for physical therapists and related staff who work in clinical practice in Stratford, and surrounding lociations in Ontario. The workshop provides a meaningful overview of MI using the Monarch System’s unique approach. Our method integrates MI with other impactful behaviour change practices such as coaching methods and key elements of behaviour change theories/applications. Most importantly, we will explore and help participants to acquire applied techniques to use immediately with your patients in day-to-day practices. Physical theapist professionals will learn how to build motivation and transition that enhanced motivation into a strengthened and real commitment to healthier, changed behaviours. We will teach you different ways to use such elements as presence, competence views, compelling questions, reflective listening, change talk, and tagging values onto desired behaviour changes, all in service of your patients’ health-related behaviours in lifelong care. For more details on the workshop and the Monarch System’s workshops, please visit the Monarch website. The event will be held at The Bruce Hotel, 89 Parkview Drive, Stratford, and the workshop is closed to members of the Physiotherapy Alliance – contact Ms Jennifer Harwood at jenny@corsaut.ca for registration information.
