Persistent COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy is an issue that many service providers continue to face. Join this interactive webinar where panelists working alongside refugee, immigrant and migrant (RIM) communities will discuss the benefits of Motivational Interviewing (MI) techniques to address COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy, and provide practical, inclusive approaches.
MI techniques respect client autonomy and provide a framework for collaborative discussions that can elicit a change in behavior and attitudes. This is done while maintaining client trust and privacy. Webinar participants will have the opportunity to learn MI techniques and to practice skills in small groups.
After this webinar participants will:
* Understand why MI helps elicit change in attitudes and behaviors
* Recognize the basic skills involved in MI
* Apply MI skills in their discussions related to the COVID-19 vaccine
