Motivational Interviewing Training

MI Training

Motivational interviewing is a well established behavioural and cognitive change intervention. Developed within substance misuse clinical practice, MI is now used across a broad range of clinical, educational, criminal justice and medical practice.

“Motivational interviewing is a collaborative, goal-oriented style of communication with 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. 2012.

MI is a skills based intervention that aims to support self-efficacy and increase confidence in your clients to bring about significant cognitive or behavioural change. A person centred, evidenced based way of building on existing strengths supporting clients to positively grow and change.
