It is common for people to struggle and experience ambivalence when considering making a change or when others may be expecting them to make one. When those working in helping roles encounter this ambivalence in their clients, it is often interpreted as resistance and they may feel unable to respond in an effective way. By exploring the framework and strategies of Motivational Interviewing, this workshop will provide new ways to facilitate the change process in the people they work with. Motivational Interviewing is a method for helping people find their internal motivation for finding solutions to their problems. Participants will learn strategies that start from a place of empathy and draw on the client’s personal motivation to create their own goals for change.

In-person events follow local guidelines for gathering. This workshop will transition to a virtual event should COVID restrictions limit in-person gatherings. Please call CTRI before booking flight/hotel room.
This workshop is being run in partnership with the Northern Institute of Social Justice and Yukon University.
