Brief Action Planning and Motivational Interviewing: Changing Behavior One Goal at a Time

Addressing sensitive topics, such as overweight or obesity, can be difficult even in the health care setting.  Motivational Interviewing is a way of communication that advocates for behavior change without using coercion or pressure. MI advocates for patient change in a non-judgmental manner that builds a person's own motivation for change. When first presented with the tenants and skills of MI, many health care professionals may think that they don't have time to use this tool in a clinic visit. Brief Action Planning is the tool that will enable to a provider or other health care worker to utilize the proponents of MI in a 15-minute visit. This webinar describes both MI and BAP and the difference in clinic visit outcomes between using them and not using them.  MI and BAP skills and the flow of a visit are described along with traps to avoid that many of us may fall into.

Presented By:
Julia Richards Krapfl, MS, Program Coordinator and Wellness Coach, Blank Children's Hospital

Audience:
RNs, LPNs, ARNPs, health professionals, community members and caregivers who work with or care for children and their families

Learning Outcomes:

  • Describe the steps of applying Brief Action Planning (BAP) during a patient visit.
  • Outline 3 components of Motivational Interviewing essential to successful Brief Action Planning with pediatric patients.
