Introduction to Motivational Interviewing – CPD for counsellors

Motivational interviewing (MI) has an expanding evidence base of effectiveness beyond addictions and health issues.  In this CPD event, participants are exposed to the foundations and elements of MI including the application of MI to assist clients in their change endeavours; this is specifically applicable for counsellors who collaborate with clients in changing behaviours.  Specifically, participants leave with an understanding of the foundations of MI including:

  • OARS (open-ended questions, affirmations, reflective listening and summarising)
  • Change talk
  • The MI Spirit
  • MI Principles

Motivational interviewing sits comfortably within a person-centred framework but equally can be used in any framework as an add-on.
