Motivation is a language that needs to be in our every day life in our career to best help others.
I learning the difference between both motivation types. And learning more about extrinsic motivation
I enjoyed your delivery and casual/informal style. I am planning on implementing these techniques tomorrow.
I learned that although extrinsic motivators may work well short term, intrinsic motivators work better long term.
I liked the new approach to extrinsic motivators. And I really liked the new visual of the ladder and slide. Thanks!
I learned about motivational interviewing and the techniques add or take away with increasing or decreasing stimulus.
I really knew a great deal about this subject. That said, I enjoyed your specific examples, especially the personal ones.
You can tell that Danny took a lot of time to prepare a well rounded presentation with great visuals and examples. Thank you again!
It refreshed my memory on the two motivations. I liked the interaction questions part where participants gave suggestions and ideas
My favorite section was the second part about the cons to extrinsic motivators. Interesting insight. Easy to follow along and understand
We have so many clients that are willing to try new activities I am lucky they are more intrinsically motivated until Bingo they all want something.
I didn’t realize that animals don’t have a prefrontal cortex. I thought that was really interesting. I also like the motivating interview techniques – I’ll have to try that!
I liked that you provided the various interventions that we can use in the field & everyday life. Motivational interviewing makes so much sense. I haven’t thought about debriefing that way before.
Yes, I learned that there are more down falls to extrinsic motivational reinforces than I realized. I learned about motivational interviewing and I think that it could be useful because it would give the client and chance to really look at the issue fully and give them a chance to contemplate questions they might not have before.

Learning different techniques on how to motivate clients will help me get more clients to participate in my group activity sessions
I think it was good overall I cannot think of anything for improvement. I kind of zoned out a bit so the interaction parts at large really helped to keep the focus
I really enjoyed this webinar. I saw some things from a new perspective which I appreciated. I also liked the passion behind your opinions with extrinsic motivators.
Thank you for providing online CEU’s for Recreation Therapists. I have a hard time finding ones that I find interesting or would benefit from working in a correctional environment.
I thought it was really good. The last webinar I attended, the positive psychology one a few weeks back, was pretty much stuff I already knew. But this one had a bunch of new information. Thanks!
I’m not sure how to apply this to future webinars on future topics, but for this one, I would have enjoyed more solutions. I felt like we spent a lot of time one the differences between extrinsic and intrinsic motivation, but I would have enjoyed spending more time learning how to promote intrinsic motivation.
