Motivational Interviewing Workshop (1.5 CME)

Motivational interviewing is a behavioral therapy technique involving listening, interpersonal skills, and support that helps to reduce a patient’s ambivalence and empowers them to take steps toward positive lifestyle change. Motivational interviewing is a scientifically proven technique for helping to overcome the common barrier of patient adherence.

During this hands-on motivational interviewing workshop, develop your skills to have productive and impactful conversations with your patients. Guided by Dr. Colleen Fairbanks, you’ll have the opportunity to practice motivational interviewing techniques with your colleagues and address real-life cases. Learn how to implement best practices, engage patients, resolve frustrations, and encourage adherence to a treatment plan. The smaller workshop setting allows for collaboration and feedback — you’ll leave knowing what works best and what to avoid during motivational interviewing.
