Monarch Motivational Interviewing & Coaching Tools for CHEO Chronic Pain Team ~ 10 March 2020, Ottawa, Ontario

This introductory, full day session is designed for the Chronic Pain team health professionals working at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. 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 team members to acquire applied techniques to use in your communications with patients in day-to-day practices. You will learn how to build motivation and transition that enhanced motivation into a strengthened and real commitment to 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 event will take place at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario 401 Smyth Road, Ottawa; it is closed to members of the Chronic Pain Team.
