Description

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an approach to having useful conversations about change. MI aims to address ambivalence about change and to strengthen a person's own motivation and commitment to change.

The workshop is suitable for workers working with any change process and for workers new to MI as well as those wishing to develop and refresh their MI skills.

This event will cover:

  • understanding of what MI is, of where and when MI can be useful
  • knowledge and competence in core MI skills
  • abilities to recognise and work productively with change talk and sustain talk
  • skills in consolidating commitment to change

Trainers
