Motivational Interviewing

Presented by Gary U. Behrman, PhD, MSW, M.Div., LCSW 

Effective therapeutic approaches with clients involves identifying what motivates a client to change.  This entails surfacing what is most meaningful for the client and providing effective tools and resources.  It is critical that the client claims ownership of the treatment plan.  In this workshop, we will explore and discuss holistic approaches for clients to achieve their goals by examining the importance of instilling confidence and utilizing core principles of motivational interviewing.

OBJECTIVES

  • Gain knowledge of the basic principles of motivational interviewing,
  • Identify and work effectively with cultural differences when applying these skills,
  • Apply motivational interviewing skills with a variety of clients.
