The most efficient way to develop new skills is through practice -- learning by doing. Therefore, this workshop highly interactive, incorporating structured learning activities including case examples, audio/video-recorded work samples, small group exercises, and “real”-plays. Class sizes are limited to allow for practice opportunities in a virtual learning environment. The goal is for you to be able to transfer and incorporate newly learned knowledge and skills into your real-world interactions.

The materials covered are applicable to a range of professionals such as psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, psychiatric nurses, graduate students, case managers, probation/parole officers, and other professionals working with clients in private practice, outpatient mental health centers, hospitals, day reporting centers, halfway and transitional housing programs, prisons, and probation/parole systems.

Integrating Motivational Interviewing with CBT

Motivational Interviewing (MI), with its client centered focus, can be a valuable addition for increasing client engagement and overall responsiveness to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). While CBT is viewed as a methodology for providing specific tools to help people make changes in distorted/exaggerated thinking patterns and self-defeating behaviours, the emphasis of MI is on eliciting the client’s own motivations regarding change goals. MI discussions typically focus on why and how one might change specific behaviour. The benefits of integrating MI and CBT lies in the potential to enhance engagement, treatment adherence, and reduce dropouts.
