Ellicott City, MD (Baltimore) - Introductory

Improve Client Engagement and Accelerate Behavioral Change

Are you frustrated with having the same client sessions over and over? Perhaps you’re watching your clients struggle with addiction, anxiety, or other mental health challenges, and your attempts to empower them to make positive changes in their lives feel like going into battle. You feel like you’re working harder than your client, and you feel like they resist everything.

You can make a significant, positive impact on your clients’ lives with Motivational Interviewing. Motivational interviewing (MI) has emerged over the past three decades as a leading approach for addressing a core clinical concern – motivation. When mastered, this evidence-based approach is highly effective in motivating positive change. Better still, motivational interviewing can be used regardless of diagnosis and in conjunction with other treatment approaches.

Chris Wagner, Ph.D., motivational interviewing trainer and author, will teach you the skills you need to know to successfully help these clients. You’ll learn how the MI process works, how to help your clients resolve ambivalence about change, and how to effectively respond to resistance in clients. You’ll leave this seminar confident and with the strategies you need to treat your clients with depression, anxiety disorders, addictive behaviors and other clinical issues. Escape the pattern of struggling with clients, and instead evoke your clients’ own motivation to change!
