Target Audience: Primary healthcare providers who work with children and their families.
Overview: Supporting healthy behaviour change in families can be challenging, but there are things you can do to make your conversations with families more productive. This free, accredited, online course introduces Motivational Interviewing (MI): a collaborative, patient-centered style of communication that can help strengthen personal motivation to change. Through a series of videos, self-reflective questions, exercises, and role-playing activities, this course will introduce you to the key elements of MI and provide support and advice for successfully integrating MI into your clinical practice. Using the communication strategies and tools covered in this course, you will be able to help families explore their own reasons for change and support them as they move effectively toward change. This course has been created in partnership with Live 5-2-1-0 at BC Children’s Hospital.
