'Motivational Interviewing is a collaborative, goal-oriented style of communication with a particular attention to the language of change. It is designed to strengthen personal motivation for and commitment to a specific goal by eliciting and exploring the person’s own reasons for change within an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion' (Miller & Rollnick, 2013).
We offer training and supervision for practitioners wishing to develop skills in MI whatever their level of experience and setting within which they work. The training is delivered by a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT) and the curriculum is aligned to the content recommended for practitioners and trainers in MI. The delivery team offer an experiential programme of MI learning based on their clinical experience and published research in the field internationally and across the UK. The lead trainer, Dr Jeff Breckon, got his MI training from Prof Bill Miller and Prof Steve Rollnick and has delivered the Training New Trainers (TNT) programme for MINT in Barcelona (2009) and Krakow (2013).
