Why Motivational Interviewing Might Work for Parents Served by the Child Welfare System
March 2, 9 and 23, 2021 | 2:30-4pm CST
Parent-professional interactions in child welfare practice are challenging from the outset. Often marked by discord from the first contact which is fueled by the “protective authority” of state intervention, relationship-building with parents to facilitate the restoration of security and safety for vulnerable children becomes a daunting task. Join a conversation about Motivational Interviewing (MI) as a potential avenue for building collaborative relationships with “moms and dads”. This workshop will be offered in three parts.
The workshop will be delivered by Steven P. Wells, Ph.D., LCSW. Clinical Associate Professor, OU Anne and Henry Zarrow School of Social Work, for a small group of 25 participants.
Registration fee: $10 for all 3 sessions
CEUs available for social work – $10 per credit hour
