Motivational Interviewing

Go Back

 



Motivational Interviewing (MI) is especially useful when clients are "stuck": attracted and repelled by something at the same time (say, smoking or drug use); wanting to change but fearful of it (say, getting a job), or going round and round on a decision.

Our 2 day course is arranged over split days to let participants take what they have learned on the first day, reflect on it, and so be ready for the more practice-based second day.

The course will cover:

  • Clarifying what MI is and the situations in which it can be used
  • Explaining why ’confrontational’ methods are held to be unhelpful, from this point of view
  • Understanding the role of ambivalence in motivation and decision making 
  • Creating a motivational atmosphere, asking motivational questions and processing the answers
  • Strategies for working with ’resistance’ and ’denial’
  • Assessing MI’s relevance to your own work through case-studies and practice
