This webinar will cover Stages of Change theory, and how it applies to behavioral change in ourselves and others.  We will also introduce the principles and basic techniques of Motivational Interviewing (MI), which is an evidence-based and client-centered approach for enhancing motivation and commitment to behavioral change.  Through a combination of participatory exercises, illustrative videos and lecture, participants will learn the building blocks of effective MI counseling.  Particular attention will be paid to strategies for helping people who appear to be “stuck” and/or “resistant” to change.
