CERIC has begun to partner with leaders in career development to present webinars, as part of our mandate to continue to advance knowledge in the field of career counselling.

We are delighted to announce our latest webinar series, a partnership with Roxanne Sawatzky, President and Founder of Empowering Change. The topic is Work Effectively with Ambivalent Clients: Motivational Interviewing & Stages of Change.

Help your clients overcome resistance to finding and maintaining employment. This model is the future trend for motivating job-seekers!

For those who want an overview of these techniques, we are offering:

Intro to Motivational Interviewing & Stages of Change

And for career practitioners who want to go more in-depth, there is:
