Motivational Interviewing: The Art & Science of Behavior Change Counseling
September 24-27, 2017
$255 (plus lodging at Kripalu)

Held at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, MA

The conversations that occur between helping professionals and their clients are powerful ones, capable of supporting or inhibiting the innate change process that is alive in all of us. Many helping professionals choose the work they do because they want to be agents of change. Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a person-centered, guiding method of communication and counseling that elicits and strengthens intrinsic motivation for positive change.

Designed for helping professionals who want to create well-balanced, meaningful relationships with their clients, this program offers:

  • A common sense approach for supporting people in making and sustaining change
  • Lively discussions to deepen understanding of the paradox of change and the spirit of MI
  • Practice activities for skill building
  • A combination of principles, skills, and strategies to elicit client strengths, inner wisdom, reasons for change, and ways of achieving it

Return home with practical strategies to make your interactions with clients more satisfying and effective.
