     ABOUT THE PRESENTATION

    Presenter: Rich Bradway, M.S.W., L.C.S.W.

    Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a collaborative approach to working with individuals that helps to facilitate behavior change. Participants will gain a working knowledge of the core MI processes used to cultivate change, understand the spirit of MI including when, where and how to use this evidenced-based practice with clients. We will identify specific tools to use and discuss strategies for implementation in your place of practice.


    Learning Objectives:

    1. Integrate person-centered and strategic components to improve clinical outcomes using Motivational Interviewing (MI) in a positive and supportive way.
    2. Evaluate how the four processes and OARS skills of MI help reduce client ambivalence and empower change.
    3. Employ ways to elicit, recognize and respond to “change talk” to improve treatment outcomes.
    4. Know and understand how MI facilitates the reduction of discord in the therapeutic alliance leading to positive behavioral change.

    This 6 hour Law and Ethics webinar is a deep dive, hands on workshop about the Therapist’s Professional Will. COVID has been a wakeup call and reminder that we all, regardless of age, health and socio-cultural location, need to have backup systems in place. Illnesses, retirement, relocation, sudden emergencies, and death happen. Plus, the Ethics Codes for every discipline require that you have a Professional Will. This workshop helps you plan who will contact your patients if you cannot, and ways to minimize the impact of your absence on your patients, colleagues, and community. All levels of experience welcome!

    Learning Objectives:

    1. List the essential ingredients of a comprehensive Professional Will 
    2. Analyze when and whether it is appropriate to be self-disclosing regarding the psychotherapist’s health, reasons for canceling sessions and termination, factoring in differences in social-economic, power, privilege, racial, cultural, and other differences present in their clinical practice 
    3. List 3 common problems and complications created for patients when the therapist cancels or is ill 
    4. Describe your plan for minimizing the trauma caused to patients when the therapist has to cancel, transfer or terminate earlier than expected 
    5. List your countertransference challenges/concerns re cancelling sessions.

    About the Presenter:

    Ann Steiner Ph.D., is a Certified Group Psychotherapist, licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and consultant in private practice for 30 years. She pioneered the creation of the professional will, has published over 20 articles on the subject, consults to and presents workshops to clinicians throughout the US and in Europe, and has published two books about leading groups.
