Motivational Interviewing for Behavior Change with Stephen Rollnick, PhD PH257

March 15, 2022

It’s a familiar scenario: Your client understands what they need to do to improve their health, and yet they just can’t seem to consistently follow through on eating right, exercising more, getting quality sleep, etc.

Enter motivational interviewing, a way of conducting conversations about change to strengthen clients’ motivation and commitment.

Dr. Stephen Rollnick is a pioneer in the field of motivational interviewing and has spent much of his career researching and developing effective methods for helping people resolve difficult behavior change.

He recently joined me for a live Q&A-style webinar hosted by CrossFit Health with a focus on how motivational interviewing can help clients and patients achieve their goals.

Join me live for next month’s webinar on April 22 at 6p ET/3p PT.  I’ll be chatting with Dr. Alessio Fasano about gluten and the microbiome.  Keep an eye out on CrossFit.com for registration details.

You can connect with Dr. Rollnick via his website.
