December 14, 2018 Registration

Kennesaw State University Counseling & Psychological Services invite you to join us on
Friday, December 14, 2018 , for a one-day workshop entitled:

Using Motivational Interviewing to Help Clients Change
Presented by Angela Bethea-Walsh, Ph.D.

Dr. Bethea-Walsh will discuss how Motivational Interviewing (MI) can be useful in promoting change for clients with a variety of clinical presentations. She will present the underlying “Spirit” and MI methods designed to increase motivation to change and cultivate client change language when it does not exist. Dr. Bethea-Walsh will guide participants through exercises including live demonstration, video demonstration, “real plays” and some practice in small group exercises. These exercises are designed to help participants have “a taste” of MI interventions in contrast to more confrontational helping styles.

Educational Objectives:
1. Understand how to use Motivational Interviewing to evoke the client’s own natural arguments for change.
2. Enhance skills to influence client motivation to enhance therapy outcomes.
3. Support clients in deciding whether or not they want to change.
