The Intersection of Public Health and Motivational Interviewing during COVID-19
Thursday, April 15, 2021 2:00pm – 3:30pm ET

Featured speakers: Antoine B. Douaihy, MD & Cassandra L. Boness, MA

The COVID-19 pandemic has gravely affected people’s lives creating a “new normal” with serious consequences impacting communities and individuals. This webinar aims to introduce healthcare practitioners to the usefulness of motivational interviewing (MI) in fostering collaborative conversations promoting public health behaviors, such as mask wearing and vaccine uptake, and navigating uncertainty in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. MI has been defined as person-centered method of guiding to elicit and strengthen personal motivation for change. It is designed to help people change a desired behavior by leveraging their own values and beliefs. MI is an egalitarian, empathetic “way of being”. It is a collaborative communication style that uses specific strategies such as reflective listening, shared decision-making, and eliciting change talk. This interactive webinar will discuss how practicing MI can help practitioners cope better with the “new normal,” support patients in practicing public health behaviors, and address the challenges of the impact of the pandemic. See event page for credit information.
