This introductory full day session is designed for health professionals working in the Windsor-Essex counties’ area. The 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 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, all in service of your health-related behaviours in lifelong care. The event will take place at Caesars Windsor hotel and events’ facility 377 Riverside Drive East (Hotel, Casino and Valet Entrance: McDougall Ave. and Pitt St.), Windsor, ON, CA N9A 7H7, Tel: (800) 991-7777.
