Communication Strategies to Support Client/Patient Behaviour Change
The basic concept behind The Monarch System’s Motivational Interviewing (MI) presentations and workshops is to enhance the impact you have on your patients/clients via adding MI tools, skills, and communication strategies that complement your knowledge base in your particular health profession. More can be found about our approach at: www.monarchsystem.com
- Some evidence-based, effective ways to communicate with clients/patients to foster their behaviour change;
- How “not to” communicate with clients/patients, if the goal is behaviour change; and
- How effective communication with clients/patients benefits both clients/patients and providers.
