MITI Coding Training

Watson Wellness Promotion (WWP) is taking off for snowy Chicago to conduct MITI coding training at the Universoty of Illinois at Chicago this week.  

Never heard of MITI Coding?  
MITI stands for Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity.  It is a treatment fidelity measure, common used to help people develop their skills in Motivational Interviewing.  

How does it work?
A provider/ practitioner will record himself/ herself using MI skills.  This can be an audio or video recording.  The provider/ practitioner sends the digital file to Watson Wellness Promotion for review.  Using the MITI Coding System, Watson Wellness Promotion can determine your strengths, as well as your areas for growth with regard to learning Motivational Interviewing.  

Interested in sending a file or review?  Or interested in learning how to use the MITI coding system yourself?  Contact Kate Watson at Kate@WatsonWellnessPro.com.

Health Coaching "Wellness Boosts"

Are you interested in avoiding holiday weight gain, or holiday-related stress?  Does the pressure of the holiday season make it more difficult for you to stick to your health-related goals?  Watson Wellness Promotion is offering holiday season "wellness boosts" for only $40.  This is a limited time offer.

What is a "wellness boost"?
Rather than committing to three health coaching sessions (which is what the typical package includes), client can choose a one-session "wellness boost" for only $40.  This session is intended to help a client re-commit to goals which he/she has already started.  Think of a "wellness boost" as a recharge.  It's like renewal your marriage vows, but instead, we will work to renew your wellness vows.  

What if I haven't already started working on my goal?
Watson Wellness Promotion recommends the regular 3-session package for those who are embarking on a new change.  The one-session boost is unlikely to be helpful for someone who just getting started.  

Schedule your "wellness boost" to take place before January 1st in order to take advantage of this limited time offer!

Contact Kate@WatsonWellnessPro.com to schedule your appointment.

Happy Holidays

To USA friends and followers:  Watson Wellness Promotion wishes you and your family a happy Thanksgiving holiday this week.  May we all live in wellness and grace.
