The field of probation has been implementing evidence-based practices for many years, focusing on community safety and behavior modification of our clients.  Motivational Interviewing and EPICS II are also popular and growing practices.  But have you given any thought as to how your rapport with your participants can affect your participants' success and yours?

Balance is the key:  The balance between accountability and social support; the balance between caring and enabling.  Building an appropriate rapport with participants can take your role in a participant's success one step further.  The panelists will share their personal experiences.  Each will discuss what they have found to be effective and ineffective in building a rapport to facilitate behavioral change.  The panelists will cover the following learning objectives:

  • The importance of holding each participant accountable for their behavior;
  • Providing social support without enabling;
  • Identifying boundaries: I am not your friend, but I am not your enemy.
