Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an interpersonal style of communication that is designed to strengthen intrinsic motivation, and commitment to specific behaviour-change goals, by eliciting and exploring the person’s own reasons for change. MI is a collaborative, goal-orientated style of communication that pays particular attention to the language of change to help individuals resolve discrepancies and ambivalence around lifestyle choices. 

Workshop Aims:

The focus of this workshop is to assist participants to recognise and respond to the language of change with clients, utilize tools that elicit and support resolving ambivalence and resistance through the use of specific micro skills, targeted goal setting and collaborative interventions.

The workshop is experiential and participants will have opportunities to practice motivational interviewing techniques, learn effective ways to resolve discrepancy and ambivalence with people, acquire skills in effective goal setting and utilise measurement tools to monitor and inform meaningful change
