How to Use a Motivational Interviewing Approach in Peer Outreach Programs (PEP-AH Western Regional Webinar Series 2021, Webinar 2)

Hosted by Healthy Campus Saskatchewan

April 28, 2021, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm MT/CT (10:30 am – 12:00 pm PT)

One way to ensure that peer outreach programs on post-secondary campuses are effective is to design and deliver them with a Motivational Interviewing (MI) approach in mind. MI is a communication approach that supports people to consider change. Join us to explore the efficacy of MI in alcohol harm reduction and how MI can be included in peer outreach projects. We will feature a few Saskatchewan students who will describe peer outreach projects they have been involved in, and together, we will explore MI in peer-to-peer work.
