Join us for an innovative workshop on Motivational interviewing and its health research applications. This approach is a way of helping clients recognize and do something about their current or potential problems. It is particularly useful for clients may be ambivalent about changing their behavior. The strategies of motivational interviewing are more persuasive than coercive, more supportive than argumentative, and the overall goal is to increase the client's intrinsic motivation so that change arises from within rather than being imposed from without. Dr. Barnett has been a member of the “Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers” since 2005.
When: Wednesday, Nov. 8, 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
