Motivational Interviewing for Mental Health Practitioners

Date: 23 Jul 2019 - 25 Jul 2019


What is Motivational Interviewing?

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based clinical intervention to prepare people for change. It is a collaborative, goal-oriented approach paying particular attention to the language of change. MI is designed to strengthen one’s 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).

Creating Motivation for Change

Motivation emerges through an interpersonal process, the product of an interaction between people. This is very different from the popular notion that motivation is internal, residing within the individual as a personal state or trait. Motivation for change can not only be influenced by but in a very real sense arises from an interpersonal context.

Workshop Content

The aim of this workshop is to understand the theory and philosophy underpinning MI and to be able to practice MI through experiential learning. The following topics will be covered:

- The attitude and philosophy of MI
- The core skills : OARS
- The conceptual anchor of MI : Ambivalence
- Responding to Change Talk
- The four processes of MI
- Short form tactics
