Motivational Interviewing for Financial Empowerment

A Primer

Thursday October 24, 2019


This is a half-day training for anyone who works with people trying to make positive changes in their financial habits. You may have trained in Motivational Interviewing (MI) before, either long ago, or just recently. Or you may never have heard of MI. In all cases, this workshop has been created to help you help others achieve more financial security.

The Chilliwack Financial Literacy Committe has been working since 2014 to create opportunities for all of Chilliwack's residents to gain greater Financial Empowerment, and offering this training for service providers and financial literacy tutors is just another step in our work.

What you will learn: Practical Skills and Foundational Approaches you can use right away to help draw out of your clients their own reasons for change, help build their readiness to change and help them strengthen their commitment to change. These skills are useful to help your clients with any kind of change, and so what you learn here will have wide application. However, this training will use Financial Empowerment as it's central theme.

What is MI? A goal-oriented, client-centered communication style to elicit behaviour change by helping clients explore and resolve ambivalence. There is a huge body of evidence to support its use! 

Additionally, you will be offered the opportunity to practice your skills in small groups, with trained coaches, after the training. We will help you to set up convenient dates, times and locations where you can hone your MI skills. 

The cost for this training is $25.

We'll provide coffee and tea, and light breakfast foods.

Look forward to seeing you there,
