Motivational Interviewing training for Practitioners

Does Part Of Your Job Involve Encouraging People To Make Changes In Their Lives? Is Part Of Your Work Motivating Others?

As practitioners, our attitudes and approaches can have a dramatic effect on how we help others to make changes.

Motivational Interviewing has gained wide recognition by professionals from many fields in providing not only a useful framework for understanding behaviour change but also a non confrontational style that helps people move on in their lives. It is now used in a range of settings such as primary health care, probation, education, the prison service and the addictions fields.

We provide workshops that aim to introduce participants to the model, concepts and skills for helping people to change. Participants have an opportunity to learn through group discussion, experiential and skills based exercises.

“I was first trained myself in Motivational Interviewing in 1997 and have used this approach both exclusively and integrated within my practice as a therapist. I attended training by the authors of the approach Bill Miller and Steve Rollnick and am part of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers which keeps me up to date with developments in the field of MI.

“I have provided Motivational Interviewing training since 1998 to groups of professionals from a variety of backgrounds nationwide. These have been both inhouse tailor made training workshops and general workshops open to all. In particular I have an interest in the application of Motivational interviewing in health care settings, education and mental health. I have provided other training in related fields such as effective communication skills, stress management, supervision skills, brief therapy, systemic therapy and working with families.
