Monarch Level 1 Motivational Interviewing Workshop for the WECHC ~ 2 X half-days, 22 & 29 January 2021 [via Zoom]

This Monarch introductory-level Motivational Interviewing (MI) 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 professionals 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, moving with apparent-resistance in service of your clients’ needs for long-term goal setting and commitment to change. The workshop is 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 22nd and 29th of January 2021 from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM both days. The workshop is open to all health professionals. Registration is now open and all information is available through this WECHC Monarch Level 1 2021 Flyer.
