    • Online Webinar

    Join MD CASH for a webinar on how motivational interviewing makes a real economic impact to help move individuals towards financial stability. Motivational interviewing is goal-directed and client-centered counseling style that allows clients to develop their self directed positive behavior change. This method assists in facilitating the conversation with the client in order for the client to explore their decisions and review their options in a safe environment which results in an internal commitment to create positive change. Motivational interviewing is asking open-ended questions, providing positive reinforcement and affirmations, and takes a non-judgmental approach to a client’s situation. This webinar will define motivational interviewing, provide an overview of how this technique works and tips on how to use this approach with clients to help them achieve financial stability.

    Webinar Objectives:

    • Define motivational interviewing
    • Understand the impact of motivational interviewing
    • Identify examples of questions that engage and motivate clients

    Presenter:

    Sue Rogan, AFC® certificant, Director of Financial Education, MD CASH (Creating Assets, Savings and Hope) Campaign
