IntroductionArtboard 70

Motivational Interviewing is a potent, evidence-based approach for working with people with troubling behaviour who do not yet see the need for change.

Whilst around since the early 1980s, the approach was updated in 2013 in line with the current thinking in wellbeing approaches underpinning this programme.

A key change was adding compassion as the new component in the spirit of Motivational Interviewing.

This course is suitable for people new to MI and experienced practitioners who want to understand this compassionate update, and refresh their skills.

The course is skills-based; you will go away with a compassionate way of being with people who seem stuck.

A prior knowledge of counselling skills would be an advantage.
