Motivational Interviewing 2 day Masterclass

This course has been developed specifically for alcohol and other drug practitioners who want to build and strengthen core clinical skills in motivational interviewing, a core competency for alcohol and other drug workers at all levels.

Motivational interviewing is a directive, client-centered interaction style that helps people to explore and resolve ambivalence to change. It’s more than a set of strategies.

  • Learn how ambivalence and change impact on therapy outcomes
  • Understand the spirit, philosophy and principles of MI so you are not limited by a handful of strategies
  • Experience the change process through self practice and self reflection

Our unique interactive self-practice approach means you will really experience MI from the inside, creating a deep understanding of how it works.
