There are magic moments in life: where we discover there are more effective ways of doing things than our usual ways. That’s a gift we should not deprive ourselves of, and that’s what I experienced in this workshop. Thank you.
I want to congratulate the dynamic duo, John and Jean-Marc! Listening and compassion are the very heart of our practice…and this workshop reassured me and gave me the confidence I need to continue helping and treating my clients, despite the time limits and challenges of our work.
Some types of training are essential, and this is one of them! For the entire organization. It teaches us to communicate better and to motivate our clients in an era of economic change.
An excellent workshop! It was stimulating to learn how to lead the patient to make changes at their own pace…
Wow! This is a very impressive method. I will be starting a smoking cessation centre soon, and this gives me lots of confidence that I will succeed at motivating those clients.
Excellent training that offers a way to treat patients with simple, practical tools. Very interesting to practise each skill in turn. Should be recommended for all health care workers. Thank you!
I never imagined that with a tool like motivational interviewing, we would be able to engage people who were completely closed at the beginning.
I really appreciated their way of delivering the material on motivational interviewing techniques. I especially loved their therapist-client role-play. Thank you both.
Very relevant workshop, especially in the context of behavioural change. It consolidates our therapeutic relationship skills. The instructors’ approach is steeped in the subject of the workshop – entirely empathetic, respectful and open.
Thank you, Jean-Marc and John! I really liked the motivational interviewing workshop. The exercises allowed us to start putting MI techniques into practice immediately. This will be very useful for me in my professional practice.
I have been using [motivational interview techniques] for four years, but I still learned and internalized new aspects that will help me develop an effective and satisfying practice.
I recommend this workshop for every professional, without exception. Excellent trainers! Role-playing to practise being more at ease with our clients.
Very interesting, very motivating, easy to apply to my nursing practice. I recommend it to everyone who has to deal with any type of client. The instructors are amazing! It inspires you to learn more about the topic and helps us understand and let go. The patient is in charge and responsible for their own health.
I recommend this workshop for all health care professionals, especially those who have had to deal with professional burnout and who feel the need to convince their clients, because it shows you how to ‘lay the table’ for change without exhausting yourself.
I really appreciate the way you present the content to us. It allows us to concretize the principles and techniques. Immediately, when you were introducing the participants, the fact that you asked us what we love and made the connection with our clients’ problem(s) showed me that I was going to understand something concrete. Bravo. Thank you so much.
This is a truly interesting workshop that helps us become aware that the primary motivation must come from the patient, not the health care worker. The ‘expert’ is the client. It is the client who must decide what is best for him- or herself.
What could be better than super motivated and motivating instructors for a workshop on motivational interviewing techniques? Thanks a lot. The workshop was very interesting, interactive and it was over far too quickly. Looking forward to seeing you for the next instalment!
Even though I am in my first stumbling attempts, it works very well and very quickly.
Superb presentation. It invites the input of the participants, which allows them to put the techniques into practice.
