Applied Motivational Interviewing & Coaching Tools for Health Professionals ~Brescia University – 15 June & 6 July 2023 {via Zoom}

This introductory course provides a meaningful overview of MI using The Monarch System’s unique approach which integrates MI with other impactful and evidence-based behaviour change practices such as coaching methods and key elements of behaviour change theories/applications. This 2-half days’ workshop is sponsored by Brescia University College and is restricted to Brescia Food and Nutrition Sciences’ students; participants need to attend both days to be eligible for a certificate of course completion from the Monarch System. During the two days, we will explore and help you to acquire applied techniques to use with your clients in your professional practicums and in your day-to-day contacts. You will learn how to build motivation and transition that enhanced motivation into a strengthened and real commitment to behaviour changes. We will teach you different ways to use such elements as presence, competence views, compelling questions, reflective listening, readiness to change and change talk, tagging values onto desired behaviour changes, and moving with apparent-resistance in service of your clients’ needs for long- term goal setting and commitment to change.
