Motivational interviewing training involves a blended learning program consisting of 4 self-directed e-Learning modules (approx. three hours), two full-day interactive workshops and a one hour follow up zoom call. Participants are recommended to complete the e-Learning modules in the week prior to their scheduled workshop. The best learning outcomes will be achieved through completing these sessions in order.

The workshop builds on the topics covered in the introductory e-Learning modules and offers opportunities for further application and practice. Topics covered in the interactive workshops include:

Day 1 - Friday 9 April 2021

MI 1: The Spirit of MI 

An understanding of the spirit is essential and will guide further learning and your practice. The first session will cover the underlying spirit of MI, along with the core skills. The core skills are used with other forms of counselling and across the four processes of MI.

MI 2: Change Talk

The focus of the second session will be on change talk, with time spent on the different subtypes of change talk. The aim is to help you better recognise and respond to change talk when it is evoked from your clients.
