Change is difficult. Anyone who has ever tried to eat healthier or spend less during the holiday season can relate. As Tribal housing professionals, we have all experienced clients with the desire to change but fail to commit or comply with program requirements. Resistance to healthy spending habits for example is not always about blatant program defiance. This resistance can also result from natural ambivalence and the inability to see how change will benefit their current situation long term. In this webinar, we will define Motivational Interviewing (MI) and how it is used in many social service industries to motivate change. The primary goal of this approach is to help Tribal housing clients acknowledge responsibility and remain inspired to commit to small steps that achieve lasting goals.
-Review the basics of Motivational Interviewing
-Evaluate MI questions and how they promote trust and encouragement
-Examine how evidenced based MI reduces no-show and program attrition
