You are visiting us from Virginia. You are located in HHS Region 3. Your Center is Central East ATTC.


This will be a highly experiential, do, tell, and show workshop. We will focus on what we say and how we say it and watching how it lands on the person we are coaching. We will look at the essential spirit, skills, and structure of the conversation creating a parallel process of coaching and training using motivational interviewing. We place a special emphasis on noticing and being mindful of our "righting reflex" working with the trainees.  Motivational interviewing fits as well in working with supervisors & coaching as it does with clients, patients, and people we serve. This workshop will teach a respectful, compassionate model of coaching. We will use real play and role-play so that we can be reflective and analyze and redesign our own plan for coaching others. We will define supervision as a process in which a worker is given the responsibility to work with another person in order to achieve certain personal, professional, and organizational goals.  Supervision/coaching must be supportive and educational and have some quality accountability to protect the welfare of clients, patients, and people we serve. We will explore seven practices: self-responsibility, presence, authenticity, state shifting, empathy, appropriate boundaries, and skillful communication.
