Motivational Interviewing: Helping People Change (1 Day)

Duration

1 day

Course Overview


This one-day course introduces delegates to the basic theory and practical application of motivational interviewing, a person-centred, evidenced-based approach to helping people change.
Delegates will learn a useful model for understanding why people get 'stuck' in unhealthy behaviour patterns and often resist efforts to motivate them to change. The course goes on to introduce some basic skills in talking with people about change, helping people to uncover their own reasons to change and begin to take the necessary steps to make a start.

Learning Outcomes


This course aims to equip delegates with the skills to:
  • Describe the key principles of the MI approach
  • Identify when MI might usefully be applied
  • Utilise strategies for helping people change

  • Methods of Delivery


    This course utilises PowerPoint presentation and flip chart work as aids to the trainer's presentation. Delegates are encouraged to share their knowledge through group discussion, small group work and practical exercises. There will be a DVD skills demonstration.
