The stories we share reveal who we are and what we value. In this session, Martha will focus on how we can use our stories to inspire and prompt change in health care.

Inviting Change Into The Room
Mallori DeSalle, MA, LMHC, NCC, CMHC, MATS, CPS
Motivational Interviewing Trainer
The adage “The only thing that is constant is change” suggests an illusion that people expect and therefore welcome change into our lives just as we may welcome a guest into our homes. Like the wacky aunt that visits at holidays or the grandfather that carries peppermints in his pocket, we pretend like change is always warmly ushered into our homes, given a seat at the table and integrated into our conversations. But, we (human beings) don’t always welcome change, nor do we seek it out. Instead, change is the black sheep of the family, the step-cousin one generation removed, that was left off the Christmas card list. Change, though inevitable, is sometimes even regarded as a consequence thrust upon us. This is especially true for health related changes (diet, exercise, smoking cessation, etc) often feeling like a burden forced upon us. We resist change. We ignore change. We lock change out of the room. Luckily, you have the key to the lock. Listening with your heart to your patient’s thoughts, ideas and dreams for tomorrow is how we invite change in the room.
In this interactive session Mallori DeSalle will invite us all to think about change by using Motivational Interviewing. Motivational Interviewing is an evidence-based communication skill that can support sustained health behavior change. Researched and practiced across all forms of healthcare and behavioral healthcare, this tool can help change feel possible. During this playful conversation, Mallori will include her own story, welcome audience interaction, spark engagement through practice and may even inspire you to change. No need to RSVP, everyone (including change) is invited.
