Monarch Level 1, Introductory Motivational Interviewing Workshop for the WECHC ~ 2 half-days, 15 & 22 October 2021 [via Zoom]

This introductory, 2 half-day courses provide a meaningful overview of MI using The Monarch System’s unique approach which integrates MI with other impactful and evidence-based behaviour change practices such as coaching methods and key elements of behaviour change theories/applications. Most importantly, we will explore and help you to acquire applied techniques to use with your clients in your day-to-day contacts. You will learn how to build motivation and transition that enhanced motivation into a strengthened and real commitment to behaviour changes. We will teach you different ways to use such elements as presence, competence views, compelling questions, reflective listening, readiness to change and change talk, tagging values onto desired behaviour changes, and moving with apparent-resistance in service of your clients’ needs for long- term goal setting and commitment to change. The workshop is being sponsored by the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program of the Windsor Essex Community Health Centre and will be delivered virtually using Zoom format on two separate Fridays, the 15th and 22nd of October 2021 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM on both days. While the Zoom format is not ideal, it does offer enough flexibility to do small-size (2-3 persons) group work. Registration is now open at this link and all information is available through the Monarch Level 1 WECHC October 2021 Flyer.
