Webinar: Motivational Interviewing in Weight Neutral Care
Motivational Interviewing is a skillful conversation style that focuses on exploring an individual’s own motivation and commitment to change. The clinician skillfully draws attention to the individual’s strengths and links them with things important to them. This process moves them from a state of ambivalence to a state of action. Learning this skill can be very instrumental in providing weight neutral care since the focal point is the individual and not the clinician.
In this webinar we will be talking about:
- What motivational interviewing is not!
- How motivational interviewing supports weight neutral care
- The relationship of empathy & weight neutral conversations
- Some weight neutral statements you can integrate into your counseling practice.
All registrants will receive access to the webinar recording, transcript, and resources.
