This is a four half-day online training event running from 9:30am - 12pm each day.

It will be facilitated by Jim O' Shea.

Motivational interviewing (MI) is a form of collaborative brief intervention which strengthens a client’s own internal motivation and commitment to change. It is essentially a brief, person-centred counselling style which addresses the common problem of ambivalence (or uncertainty) about change by paying particular attention to the language of change (or change talk). It is designed to strengthen the individual's motivation for, and movement toward, a specific change goal by eliciting and exploring the person’s own reasons for change.

Some topics covered to include:

  • Principles and spirit of Motivational Interviewing and person centred care
  • Models of change
  • Motivational Interviewing core skills
  • Motivational Interviewing: skills and processes overview
  • Dealing with ambivalence to change – practical exercises 
  • Talking behaviour change
