Using Motivational Interviewing in Your DPP to Support Behavior Change and Retention

90-minute Webinar Recording
Effective dates for CE credit: 8/2/2019 – 8/2/2021

Program Overview

This webinar gives a brief overview of Motivational Interviewing (MI) concepts in the contexts of addressing diabetes prevention behaviors and developing supportive group dynamics in DPP classes. The overall objective is to inform/refresh National Diabetes Prevention Program Lifestyle Coaches in the person-centered skills of MI to help facilitate not only effective individual and group conversations about goal setting and behavior change, but also to foster a cohesive group dynamic. This process is a success factor in Diabetes Prevention Program participant retention; it is hoped that Lifestyle Coaches will come away ready to discuss successful MI-based communication and retention strategies to engage with DPP class participants.

Learning Outcome

The Diabetes Prevention Program Lifestyle Coach will be able to successfully engage MI-based communication strategies to encourage and empower class participants for lifestyle behavior changes and positive group dynamics.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this presentation, the participant will be able to:

-- Discuss the righting reflex and contrast it with the Spirit of Motivational Interviewing (MI).
-- Identify the five basic MI communication principles in a health behavior dialog with a person with pre-diabetes.
-- Recognize when MI micro skills are appropriate or optimal to engage.
-- Identify group dynamics and how MI principles/skills can be used to facilitate supportive group climate in DPP cohort classes.
