The World Health
Organization has identified vaccine hesitancy as one of the top threats to
global health. Motivational Interviewing includes skills that help to elicit
information from your client, express empathy and collaborate together to
exchange information and address concerns. This approach has strong evidence
for addressing vaccine hesitancy. Over this 3-hour workshop, we will look at
how to help clients explore their own ambivalence, find their own arguments for
change and make their own informed decision about vaccinating.
Living Healthy Champlain offers workshops for health care professionals that will help them to support their patients in making behaviour changes based on their own motivations, and empower them to self-manage their chronic conditions.
