Monarch Level 1 Workshop on Motivational Interviewing & Coaching Tools for Healthcare Professionals ~ WECHC ~ Sept 23 & 30 2024 {viaZoom}

This introductory, two half-day workshop sessions provide a meaningful overview of MI using the Monarch System’s unique approach which integrates Motivational Interviewing (MI) with other impactful behaviour change practices such as coaching methods and key elements of behaviour change theories/applications. This event is sponsored by the Windsor Essex Community Health Centre (WECHC) and is open to all Ontario residents who are either health professionals or students enrolled in a health professional program. Over the two days, we will explore and help you to acquire applied techniques to use with your clients in your day-to-day practice. You will learn how to build motivation and transition that enhanced motivation into a strengthened and real commitment to healthier behaviours. We will teach you different ways to use such elements as presence, competence views, compelling questions, reflective listening, change talk, tagging values onto desired behaviour changes, and moving with apparent-resistance in service of your patients’ needs for long- term goal setting and commitment to change.
