Motivational interviewing

Motivational Interviewing is a powerful approach to a managing a conversation for those looking to facilitate positive changes in lifestyle and  behaviours in others. Our training will provide you with practical MI techniques to hold effective change conversations in a range of contexts: improving health and wellbeing, engaging staff in compliance with new processes, improving service delivery, lifting performance, changing culture.

Our aim is to make this powerful set of techniques easily accessible for anyone who needs to facilitate successful behavioural change in others. You learn the essential strategies, skills and approaches to influence and enable others to make positive changes for themselves, and those around them. The course is highly interactive, with plenty of skills practice to build competence and confidence. We provide pre-course self assessments to raise awareness, and post workshop support to aid application.
