Session 2- Eliciting Change Talk in Motivational Interviewing: Research shows that the more a client talks about change, the more likely they are to actually make the change. Too often we focus on problem-solving before the client is engaged in the change process. This webinar will share strategies for evoking change talk and responding and reinforcing change talk.  Register:

Session 3- Developing Discrepancy in Motivational Interviewing: Sometimes eliciting change talk is challenging when a client or patient is focused on not changing. The excuses to not change is called sustain talk. Essentially, the individual may lack problem recognition and engage in sustain talk to avoid talking about change. This webinar will explore how to respond to sustain talk and strategies to develop discrepancy toward problem recognition.   Register:

Session 4- Building Hope and Confidence in Motivational Interviewing: For some clients struggles with confidence interfere with progress toward change. These individuals may be very interested in change but have a lot of fears that get in the way. This webinar will explore the connection between hope and confidence and strategies to help clients renew hope and build confidence in their ability to change.  Register:
