Past Workshop: Motivational Interviewing to Address Vaccine Hesitancy among People Who Use Drugs

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based counselling approach that seeks to enhance an individual's motivation for behavioural change. In terms of vaccine hesitancy, it seeks to understand an individual's perspective on vaccination and reasons for hesitancy. MI is participant-centered, goal-oriented, and collaborative. We hosted this workshop to teach key motivational interviewing skills and strategies that help navigate conversations about the COVID-19 vaccine with PWUD.
