On November 2nd, the Fay Honey Knopp Institute held a workshop called Using MI Techniques to Spark Achievement Motivation in Children & Youths. The workshop was held in the meeting room at the Middlebury Regional Emergency & Medical Services facility.
David Prescott, MSW, LICSW, Clinical Services Director of the Becket Family of Services in Maine, discussed processes and skills that build on a fundamental spirit of approaching interactions with an attitude of partnership, acceptance, and compassion, with a goal to evoke the youth’s own motivations for change.
The audience expressed that they appreciated the insight that was provided, and the time David took to interact with them.
