Support people through change via an effective person-centred approach used widely in therapeutic settings.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) uses a therapeutic, person-centred approach to evoke a person’s own motivation to make change happen. People who are not provided the opportunity to explore their own concerns and fears are unlikely to sustain the changes they make.
Participants are guided through applying Motivational interviewing strategies in their work using a mixture of group discussion, audio-visual presentations, role-plays and reflection.
The workshop content is delivered using a variety of training methods, including didactic presentation, small and large group discussion and role-play exercises.
