Might learning Motivational Interviewing (MI) enhance your practice?
Imagine that your clients could uncover their own motivation and activate themselves more to meet their goals. Motivational Interviewing (MI) helps you broaden and deepen your skills to help people make changes based on their values, and their reasons to change.
Dr. Michael Fulop’s approach to MI training is hands-on and pragmatic. In our Motivational Interviewing workshops he’ll help you learn MI concepts and practice MI conversational skills so clients can move into and through their ambivalence in feelings, behaviors, or attitudes. In the course of our active workshops you will come to better understand the MI framework and approach to use in brief health conversations, or longer counseling situations. Extensive research supports MI as a highly effective way to help people alter their own behaviors.
Dr. Michael Fulop is a clinical psychologist who integrates MI, as well as other evidence-based models, into his practice to assist clients and families to improve their physical or mental health, parenting skills, and even academic self-activation. His motivational interviewing trainings focus on psychologists, social workers, diabetes educators, school psychologists, teachers, family counselors, physicians, psychiatric nurse practitioners, graduate students, naturopaths, deputies, physical therapists, and others.
Michael Fulop has T1 diabetes. He started down the path to learn MI as a way to help those clients with diabetes, and especially the professionals (diabetes educators and other health professionals) that take care of children, families and adults with T1 and T2 diabetes. MI helps professionals create rapid client engagement and improves health outcomes.
Dr. Fulop began his formal MI training in Sitges, Spain (2009) at the MINT TNT (training of new trainers). He holds a doctor of psychology degree from Pacific University and has been serving clients in Portland as a psychologist since 1993.
