How to Change Anything: Using Motivational Interviewing and Stages of Change to build rapport with resistant clients and reduce burnout.Change can be difficult for most folks, and so inspiring and motivating clients to commit to positive growth and change can be tricky. In this three hour workshop, Paul Mikowski, Psy.D will help mental health clinicians and human service workers learn and practice new approaches to discussing change with resistant or ambivalent clients. Dr. Mikowski will help participants to have a working knowledge of stages of change and be able to identify the stage of change for any client behavior, know how to match therapeutic orientation to stage of change, be able to use Motivational Interviewing to build client motivation for a given target behavior, and build comfort conducting MI interventions by identifying change talk, use of reflections and questions, and readiness rulers. 3 CEU credits available for LMFTs, LMHCs, and LMSWs.
