Webinar: Counseling in Tobacco Treatment: The Intersection of Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and the Transtheoretical Model of Change
The two main components of effective Tobacco Use Disorder treatment are Counseling and Medication. This webinar will focus on the counseling aspect of treatment, specifically, when and where (and why) to employ strategies tailored to the current needs and goals of the patient. To accomplish this, we will look at the intersection of Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and the Transtheoretical Model of Change. The goal of counseling is to engage the patient. Engagement means that a client is involved in a process where his or her own needs, preferences, and abilities are balanced with your professional interventions to create a positive outcome.
