As educators, we want to know how to enhance students' intrinsic motivation to change and achieve in the academic, career, and social/emotional domains. Receive an introduction to two evidence-based practices: motivational interviewing strategies and the trans-theoretical model of change. Walk away with skills and resources to elaborate, affirm, reflect and summarize change talk into your practice.
After viewing this webinar you should be able to:
1. Discuss fundamental conditions necessary to elicit change talk.
2. Use the style and spirit of listening required to motivate students to change and achieve.
3. Ask open-ended questions to elicit willing to change talk, able to change talk and ready to change talk.
4. Affirm, reflect, and summarize change talk.
