Communication Techniques of Appreciative Inquiry and Motivational Interviewing for Health and Wellness

What would it be like to connect more deeply with your clients and expand your tools to help move them forward in their process to optimal health and wellness?

Motivational Interviewing techniques offer ways to help clients hear themselves, explore more deeply, uncover ambivalence, resistance, and discrepancies between intentions and actions, and move into action with clarity and insight. Appreciative Inquiry techniques help clients build a sense of self-efficacy and personal empowerment as they build on prior successes in their lives. These two skill sets in combination give a coach a breadth of knowledge and tools to draw on for a wide variety of clients with differing needs.
