Monarch Level 1 Motivational Interviewing & Coaching Workshop for the Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry / Académie Canadienne de Dentisterie Pédiatrique (CAPD/ACDP) ~ 19 September 2019, Ottawa Ontario

This introductory full day session designed for dental health professionals associated with the CAPD/ACDP, the “National Voice Of Pediatric Dentistry in Canada” 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 in day-to-day practices. Dental oral health practitioners will learn how to build motivation and transition that enhanced motivation into a strengthened and real commitment to healthier 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.
