Description: 

Some of the most familiar adolescent health programs engage youth in lively group activities, such as interactive games and role plays, where the energy in the room is high and could be mistaken for pandemonium. Now imagine a quiet space, where the trained facilitator guides the participants through a journey that could lead them to change their behavior, avoid risk, and choose a healthy, safe future. Motivational interviewing (MI) is gaining a robust evidence base, and practitioners are enthusiastically integrating it in program implementation. Join Healthy Teen Network to learn more about MI and how it can enhance the delivery of your program. Presenters: Deborah Chilcoat, MEd &Mousumi Banikya-Leaseburg, MD, MPH, CPHFor more information or to register, click here.
