Monarch Applied Motivational Interviewing & Coaching Tools for Brescia University Dietetic Interns ~ 12 June 2020

This Monarch System 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 with your patients/clients in day-to-day practicums and placements and your future professional practices. You will learn how to build motivation and transition that enhanced motivation into a strengthened and real commitment to client/patient 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, moving with apparent-resistance in service of your clients’ needs for long-term goal setting and commitment to change. This event is closed to Brescia University dietetic interns. Given the current COVID situation, it is likely the workshop will be a virtual one conducted via the Zoom platform. If the virtual format is the case, instructions for Zoom connection will be sent out well in advance of the workshop date.
