Homelessness 201: Motivational Interviewing Focusing: It’s all about the Change Talk (Step 3) on ZOOM
January 20, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Research confirms that people who verbalize their own reasons for change (change talk) are more likely to change than people who don’t. In this workshop you will learn about the two types of change talk, how to recognize them when they occur, then practice what MI calls EARS to respond. You will be introduced to scaling questions to evoke change talk while using the four principles of empathy, developing discrepancy, rolling with resistance, and supporting self-efficacy. This is Part 3 of a 4 Part Series.
