Next Parenting Group: Wed., May 1st, 7-9 p,

April 15, 2013
Next group will focus on Motivational Interviewing.
I’ve covered this topic a number of times before, so if you feel like a refresher or if this topic is new to you, please feel free to join.
What’s Motivational Interviewing?

“Motivational Interviewing is a communication approach that focuses on exploring and resolving ambivalence and centers on motivational processes within the individual that facilitate change. The method differs from more “coercive” or externally driven methods for motivating change as it not impose change (that may be inconsistent with the person’s own values, beliefs or wishes); but rather supports change in a manner congruent with the person’s own values and concerns.”

M.I. is a very useful technique to create stability in the family while at the same time help get your kids moving!
I will be discussing MI as a theory and as a very practical approach to “getting through” to teens and young adults regardless of the issue at hand—MI is an evidence-based approach that really does work.
The group will take place at my office in the group room, Wednesday, May 1st from 7 to 9 p.m.
Fee is $20.00 per person. Please RSVP.
Take care!
