  • Monarch Level 2 Motivational Interviewing & Coaching Workshop for W⟳rkforce Windsor-Essex ~ 27 September 2019, Windsor, Ontario

    27th Sep 2019 9:00:am – 27th Sep 2019 4:00:pm

    Heritage Park Alliance Church

    This advanced workshop builds on basic Motivational Interviewing (MI) skills and processes. It is a progressive follow-up to Monarch's Level 1, introductory workshop on motivational interviewing, completed by Monarch System with W⟳rkforce Windsor-Essex in March 2019. The Monarch System’s Level 2 offering is designed specifically to help professional assessors and related staff work with patients/clients who seem to experience difficulty making health behaviour changes. Many clients are caught in a perspective that they cannot change their behaviours, and/or they are overwhelmed or stuck in routines and patterns that no longer serve them. This workshop focuses on helping clients move past these change-limiting experiences, in service of fostering meaningful, desired behaviour changes. The workshop briefly will review basic MI concepts before learning new and practicing advanced MI processes such as using complex reflections; how to move toward, recognize, and work with change talk; exploring and shifting perspectives in MI; integrating resilience in client interviews; enhancing evocative questions; and establishing committed plans of action with clients. The event will take place at the Heritage Park Alliance Church, 2501 Concession Road 6, Windsor, Ontario. For more information about Monarch workshops, please visit our website.
