Course Outline

Motivational interviewing is the leading approach for initiating change in a wide range of problems. Examining the elements of Miller & Rollnick’s four-process model, participants develop an understanding of the spirit and principles of motivational interviewing, and practise skills to help cement theory into real life situations. Develop key skills to deepen assessment processes; help people to reflect on behaviours and their consequences, engage with services, and strengthen their motivation to change.

  • understand the influence of the helper on motivation for change
  • develop reflective listening skills
  • deliver the motivational interviewing within the four key phases of motivational interviewing
