Brown Bag Lunch & Learn

This 1.5 hour course strategically visits some of the fundamental concepts and practices of Motivational Interviewing and looks at how these tools can be used to create partnerships consistently based in a spirit of compassion, humility, and kind curiosity.  


Many organizations and individuals aspire to integrate the concepts of curiosity and compassion into their practices (I would add humility to these aspirations). This brief workshop will use a uniquely different lens to explore some fundamental tools with practical applications ranging from clinical practice and organizational correspondence, to our intimate communication with family and friends. 


Whether this is your first exposure to Motivational Interviewing (and its broader, narrative implications) or this is a refresher; this course promises to be a provocative, practical, and collaborative experience that will change the way you think about and possibly practice, communication. 


Topics will include and are not limited to: 

Silent listening 

Direct Reflection 


Open-ended questions 

Shaping/ Judgment 

Kind Curiosity 



Applied humility
