Workshop: Motivational Interviewing and the Trafficked Patient
Join us for a 2-hour workshop on Motivational Interviewing led by Candace Wheeler to teach communication and listening skills and improve specific competencies known to affect outcomes of care/patient satisfaction.

Candace Wheeler, LPC. Ms. Wheeler is the founder and executive director of Restoration 1:99, an outreach in the greater Washington, DC area to survivors of complex trauma.

This workshop will use a combination of active learning styles including discussion, case studies, peer review, simulation and standardized patients for practicing core communication skills and engaging students in self-reflection on their performance.

Program development will be evaluated by content experts with lived experience to ensure that multi-disciplinary, trauma-informed principles are applied; students are given individualized feedback; assisted in self-reflection; and cross-cultural communication skills are properly cultivated so that students become culturally safe clinicians. Survivor-facilitated teaching will be an integral part of the program as it will enrich and expand the learning environment by providing students with direct experience and focused reflection on the complexities of human trafficking ~ complexities that transcend assessment checklists and conclusions about one’s “competence.”

This workshop will be limited to a maximum of 12 students. All others will be placed on a waitlist, and will be registered if spots free up.
