Registration Open for Upcoming BHWP Trainings

Registration is currently open for several BHWP trainings. The trainings are held at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, CO.

Our next DIMENSIONS: Tobacco Free Program, Advanced Techniques training is scheduled for December 10-11, 2018.

This one and a half day training covers tobacco fundamentals, tobacco addiction, tobacco cessation strategies, and a motivational intervention for tobacco cessation. Trainees will also be trained to facilitate the DIMENSIONS Tobacco Free Group curriculum—a 6-week tobacco cessation group. The Advanced Techniques training is a train-the-trainer model, meaning participants will leave the training with the materials and knowledge to train others at their organization.

Our 2019 Motivational Interviewing for Behavior Change trainings are also scheduled! The Level I training will be held on March 4-5 and the Level II on July 29-30. 

Do you want to improve the quality of your communication with patients? Or support your patients to successfully change their health behaviors? As a healthcare provider, you may feel frustrated when working with patients that seem “resistant” or “non-compliant” when it comes to behavior change. This can even affect your experience of connection, effectiveness, and job satisfaction. If you are interested in improving your patient interactions and increasing your ability to effectively support patients towards health behavior change, Motivational Interviewing (MI) training can help.
