Mom had to do something called a WEBINAR for those trying to learn that language she teaches called Motivational Interviewing. I’m not sure how this is helpful since all I saw her doing was talking to a computer. Even I can do that without too much effort but if that’s the way people learn I guess it’s a good thing.
Apparently the organizers of the webinar did not want her to use some of her pictures so I had to step in and make it right. In motivational interviewing you are supposed to be dancing with your clients versus a tug of war. Since I frequently dance with Dad that’s a no brainer and I have been known to have a tug of war with him now and then.
We all know dancing is so much easier than fighting but sometimes people forget that concept and resort to trying to tell people what to do. So if you truly want to learn how to help people this is the language to learn. Unfortunately it does not seem to work on canines but I’m happy to help out where I can.
I am pretty tired as I just got back from a long visit at my camp in the country. The parental’s were out and about trying to impact the world with wisdom about gluten and to speak with relevance to others using Motivational Interviewing. We all know what happens to me if I eat even a smidgen of gluten – so I’m all about spreading the word about gluten sensitivity.
Mom was speaking to the Intertribal WIC of Arizona and at Hoag Memorial Hospital in Newport Beach. Both groups help women who have diabetes and they want to learn how to truly help others with behavior change. The parentals are always trying to change my walking habits so I don’t pull the leash but I don’t think Motivational Interviewing will help me change my mind about pulling – that is something us Weims just do to annoy our owners.
The weather has been great, a little windy, with the sun out. I have been resting a lot as you can tell by the picture. I am so big and take up the chair that he has to lay on me. It’s a bit crowded but I do like the snuggles.
Till next week’s adventures!
