Event Description
Building Client's Self-Efficacy This workshop will discuss the importance of building client’s self-efficacy. The training will address interventions and strategies that have shown to be effective for helping clients increase their belief about their ability to make changes. When counselors convey to the client a belief that the client is able to accomplish change, the action increases the clients own self-efficacy about making behavioral change. Self–efficacy is a theory created by Bandura (1977) that described a person’s belief in an ability to accomplish assigned tasks or goals. Miller and Rollnick (2013) utilized the theory as part of the MI model and described the process as a tool that supports a client’s action to change a behavior. Mayfield and Mayfield (2012) argued that self-efficacy connects to a person’s motivational level that is foundational for change. The technique is beneficial when clients verbalized low self-efficacy about making behavioral change. Further, Mayfield and Mayfield found that professionals who used motivational language increased behavioral change in clients up to 34% more compared to professionals who do not use the technique. This workshop will discuss the importance of building client’s self-efficacy. The training will address interventions and strategies that have shown to be effective for helping clients increase their belief about their ability to make changes. 1. Participants will gain knowledge in how to measure a client’s self-efficacy level. 2. Participants will learn at least two interventions to assist with building the clients self-efficacy levels. 3. Participants will be able to verbalize techniques to assist clients with resistance toward making movement towards positive change.
