Ontario Society for Health and Fitness is happy to share that their Winter 2017 professional development opportunity is back by popular demand. On behalf of the Lung Association of Ontario, OSHF is again hosting a special one-day workshop introducing the technique(s) of Motivational Interviewing for health behaviour change.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a “collaborative, person-centered form of guiding to elicit and strengthen motivation for change” (Miller and Rollnick, 2009). MI has a robust evidence base across a range of health behaviours, including exercise, nutrition, respiratory care and smoking. This workshop addresses the foundation skills of MI using broad, case-based learning and interactive exercises in a small group environment.
