Motivational Interviewing: From Conflict to Rapport – March 12

Motivational interviewing (MI) is grounded in a respectful stance with a focus on building rapport in what can be difficult and critical conversations. The purpose of this session is to share how collaborative conversations can strengthen a person’s own motivation for and a commitment to change. The process is borrowed from the clinical counseling practice with the purpose of empowering others to make behavioral changes and decisions that support their values and best interest. The practice of MI involves use of certain techniques that demonstrate principals and guidance that elicit our clients/peers to direct change and commitment by supporting them with OARS techniques of open-ended questions, affirmations, reflections, and summaries to move conversations into action planning.
