Homelessness 201: Motivational Interviewing Engagement to Focusing: Listening with OARS (Step 2) on ZOOM
January 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
In this workshop we will continue integrating the Spirit of MI into our way of being with clients while introducing four critical practitioner skills called OARS. You will learn “Agenda Mapping” to focus on a “target behavior” for change using counselor skills of asking open-ended questions, identifying strengths, and using reflective listening. Come prepared to “row your MI boat” using OARS! This is Part 2 of a 4 Part Series.
