Intermediate motivational interviewing
Motivational Interviewing is an evidence-based approach based on a person-centred counselling style for addressing the common problem of ambivalence about change.
It has its roots in substance misuse but has now been successfully used internationally in a multitude of settings, including with offenders, youth offending teams, childcare teams, mental health teams, GP clinics, medication adherence, reduction of HIV infection, pain management and improvement in recovery from strokes.
Motivational Interviewing is a highly effective approach in helping people make behavioural or attitudinal change, especially with individuals who are apparently reluctant to engage or who have been coerced into changing. The approach focuses on intrinsic factors for change even when extrinsic factors (e.g. the court, social workers, family) have brought them to the worker. Motivational Interviewing builds a collaborative approach and has the added benefit for in dividuals and organisations of reducing worker stress and the risk of burnout.
The one day course further develops practitioner skill and confidence in the practical application of this approach. The training will use a range of methods including didactic teaching, live demonstrations, audio, video and coaching. The training will aim to create a curiosity to learn more and develop practice to a more advanced level.
This course will be delivered by a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT) who has worked and trained across a wide range of settings, such as substance use, mental health, probation, youth offending and childcare social work.
This intermediate course is aimed at professionals who have completed an introductory Motivational Interviewing course and are actively using the approach in their practice.
It is not suitable for people who have not completed either the 2 day introductory course at the Tavistock and Portman or an equivalent course elsewhere and/or are not actively trying to use the approach in their practice.
For those people who were trained in MI some time ago
and who are looking for a refresher, the introductory 2 day course is likely to
be more appropriate. If in any doubt please contact us at CPDevents@tavi-port.ac.uk and we will be able to
advise you further.
This course will take place on Friday 22 March 2019 from 9.30am - 4.30pm.
