Motivational Interviewing (MI) Study Day

  • Date
    01 October 2019
  • Time
    09:00 - 16:00
  • TBC, Manchester, Central

If you spend your life explaining to people that they should, could, must or needs to do then this is the course for you. Motivational interviewing is a style of communication that uses a guiding/reflective style to engage with patients, clarify their strengths and aspirations, and utilise their own motivations for change, and promote independence of decision making. If this is sounding a little flowery, in a nutshell, it saves your breath, your time and you are more effective when it comes to people making decisions about themselves. 

There is an introduction and then each of the core skills of MI are taken a step at a time. There is laughter and fun with NO POWER POINT!!! Yes you heard it here first. There is NO ROLE PLAY!! There is simply excellent training. What you learn is through informal demonstrations. We keep it simple and practical so from the moment you leave you can start practicing. You can’t hurt anyone by using MI, but you may well save your forehead as you will be able to stop banging your head against the brick wall of behavioral change.
