Motivational Interviewing Training (MI, and how to use it effectively), College Court Conference Centre & Hotel, Monday, 08. February 2021

Executive Summary:
Motivational Interviewing describes an organised way of helping people to recognise their problems and to do something about them. Principally it addresses behaviour about which the client has mixed feelings: drinking and substance misuse for example, but a suprising array of common mental and physical health problems as well. Issues from taking psychoactive medication through to eating more healthily can all be addressed using motivational interviewing.
This course is based on the latest edition of Miller and Rollnick's book so covers the four broad components of skill, namely: Knowledge and Spirit, Engaging, Focusing and Evoking, and Planning and Integration. In addition it looks at the relationship between Motivational Interviewing and The Stages of Change (the work of DiClemente et al). And finally it covers how to develop your Motivational Interviewing skills and practise after the course.
Attend the course as an individual, or we can bring the 3-day course to your own organisation and train a group of 6-15 people, or you or your colleagues may be able to be trained to roll out the course in your organisation under license.
