Increasing Access through Motivational Conversation

Wednesday, June 21, 2017: 8:30 AM-4:30 PM
Franklin/McPherson (Grand Hyatt Washington)
This highly interactive session will introduce participants to selected Motivational Interviewing (MI) skills, strategies and processes that enhance clients' motivation to access various services and resources. In this session, participants will have an opportunity to practice the processes of engaging through open inquiry, focusing in on change goals, evoking the language of change, and planning achievable steps of action. Participants with little or no prior exposure to MI will benefit from learning and practicing skills in this session; participants with some or extensive prior exposure to MI will be able to refine their skills. This workshop can benefit direct service providers, supervisors, and key leaders within organizations.
