The Art & Science of
Behavior Change Counseling
631 NE 102nd Avenue
Portland, OR 97220
This two-day interactive training is for helping professionals who are in the
role of counseling people to make and sustain positive behavior changes.
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. Learn to make your interactions with clients more satisfying and effective using Motivational Interviewing (MI), 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.
