Last chance to register for Motivational Interviewing (MI) Training in Victoria!

Registration Deadline Extended to December 14th for January/February 2012 workshop dates.

Motivational Interviewing has been used extensively in the fields of mental health, chemical dependency, criminal justice, and domestic violence and is now becoming wide spread in the employment field. Three workshops, Level I, Level II and Changing Client Perspectives: Using MI within Groups will be offered between January 6th and February 2nd.  Each workshop, designed to build on skills and tools learned in previous workshop(s), focuses on developing motivational interviewing skills that lead to behaviour change in clients.

Our facilitator, Roxanne Sawatzky, is the founder of Empowering Change and was the Champion and Project Manager for the application of Stages of Change (SoC) and Motivational Interviewing in the employment sector at Opportunities for Employment ( in Winnipeg from 2006-2010. Roxanne holds a certificate in addictions counselling and case management and, as a result of the training she received in Spain in June 2009, is a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT). She is also the only Canadian Motivational Interviewing Coding Trainer in Canada.
