How to Support Clients in COVID-19 Vaccine Decision Making (This workshop is full)

April 13, 2023 from 9:00am - 3:00pm CST

5 Free CEs 

This interactive training will introduce motivational interviewing (MI) and Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT), and how these evidence-based modalities can be effectively deployed to help guide collaborative conversations with clients about COVID-19 vaccine decision-making.

MI is a collaborative conversation approach that develops and strengthens a client’s motivation for and commitment to change around health-related behavior(s). The MI framework recognizes the client as the expert in their own lived experience. Research on MI has demonstrated its benefits with marginalized populations who have not necessarily received equitable and affirming experiences in care and health settings. Topics will include the MI spirit and MI core skills to help clients resolve ambivalence towards positive change. The training will also introduce SBIRT, a five-step model for working with clients with substance use disorders which can be adapted for use in supporting vaccine decision making.

The training is provided through Connect to End COVID-19, an initiative of NASW, the NASW Foundation and the University of Texas at Austin Steve Hicks School of Social Work, with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For more information about this effort, visit NASW National Office's page.
