Benefits of taking the course to the individual, the organisation and the patient

Motivation Interviewing is a highly effective, evidence based and deeply client centred approach aimed at helping people achieve positive behaviour change. A variety of learning methods are used in a supportive learning environment reinforced by a strong evidence base and real life examples. There are lots of opportunities to explore the relevance of this approach to your own practice. The principles learned can be taken back to the workplace and used with colleagues and service users alike to promote positive change.

General areas covered

  • reflect on the common ways of trying to motivate clients and explore why these ways often do not work
  • learn about how to understand people’s existing motivation through careful listening of the language they use
  • learn how to build and strengthen client’s motivation to engage in rehabilitation/make positive changes in their behaviour
  • learn about engaging and working collaboratively with even highly resistant people

Skills gained for the workplace, technical skills or academic skills 

You will come away with practical ideas of how to integrate motivational interviewing into your practice. You will receive a practical workbook which includes tools and strategies to take away.
