Got Resistance? Using MI to Tackle Ambivalent and Oppositional Clients
Larry Chatterton, M.Ed.
This fun and informative skill building workshop will focus on overcoming discord and sustain talk with MI skills, thus enhancing motivation to change. We will discuss specific skills to engaging and breaking down barriers, as well as increasing, evoking and responding to change talk.
Once participants have attended this program, they will leave able to:
1) Describe specific skills to deal with “resistent” clients which can quickly turn resistance into change talk to help clients understand the source of their resistance and move them forward in the change process; and,
2) Explain the difference between discord and sustain talk and demonstrate how to respond to each.
