The Mystique in Changing Patient’s Behavior: The Fifty Shades of Grey

Course Description

The concept of “motivational interviewing” is now recognized in oral healthcare as becoming the best practice in “guiding” our patients in making positive changes during their lifespan. Eliminate the “control and domineering style” from our current approach in patient care and take small steps in becoming a lifestyle coach.  Our patients will only make positive changes if they see their value in day-to-day activities. Lil will walk the audience through the key principles that underscore the process of using motivational interviewing techniques in our workplace.  The video clips and interactive discussion brings about a productive environment for learning this concept while having fun during the seminar.

Learning Objectives:

·         Comparing previous and current techniques in patient interaction that reinforce better results in behavior changes

·         Discuss the 4 guiding principles  of motivational interviewing

·         Reinforce the key communication skills and their application in motivational interviewing

·         Define ambivalence and discuss how to guide patients through this obstacle in changing their behaviors

·         Observe the video demonstrations of dental hygiene and patient interactions – and provide suggestions/input in improving the tactics in motivational interviewing
