Following active participation and input from First Work’s Regional Frontline Meeting participants, we’re excited to share the following training opportunities for members only!

Practical Applications of Motivational Interviewing Part 2

This highly interactive and engaging session, Motivational Interviewing Part 2 builds on the concepts, techniques and strategies covered in part 1 of this training with new case studies and more opportunity for reflective practice and application. Participants will also dive deeper into eliciting change talk and minimizing sustain talk.
