'Motivational Interviewing: How to Motivate Healthy Behaviours' is a workshop for clinicians on Motivational Interviewing that will be presented by Dr. David Murphy. Dr. Murphy is a Physician and Medical Psychotherapist based in Leamington, Ontario.
The workshop will be provided through Zoom on June 16 2021 from 9am to 3pm EST.
Clinicians, and other healthcare providers, who can benefit from this workshop include physicians, nurses, social workers, psychotherapists, addiction counsellors, psychologists, pharmacists, personal trainers and physiotherapists.
The workshop provides clinicians with opportunities to reflect on their role as facilitators of change and practice specific skills.
Join the workshop and learn how to structure a conversation, so that a patient or client is motivated to take responsibility for implementing new, healthy behaviours.
Studies have shown that using these conversational skills will improve the health of the patient or client and improve the job satisfaction of the healthcare provider.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Describe two theoretical models of behaviour change that can guide conversations with patients and clients.
2. Demonstrate four motivational interviewing skills.
3. Describe the elements of a visit with a patient or client.
4. Put into practice two techniques to use in clinical practice to influence patients or clients to change their behaviour.
The workshop will include videos that demonstrate motivational interviewing skills. The workshop is experiential. Participants will be given the opportunity to practice their skills in break-out groups. Handouts will be provided. Space is limited to 24 participants.
