This 1-day workshop aims to consolidate learning, deepen skills acquisition and increase understanding of using Motivational Interviewing in practice. Participants attending this workshop level will have undertaken an introductory training previously.

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a communication method increasingly used within health care settings. The skills employed can also be used in a broad range of context such as rehabilitation, pain management, health care, criminal justice, education, and addiction counselling.

Throughout the day, there will be a specific focus on the technical aspects of MI, e.g. evoking and strengthening change talk and reducing sustain talk through skilful practice. Participants will receive support, coaching and feedback during the workshop in relation to their own skills development. They will also be encouraged to develop their reflective practice as there will be focus in the workshop on what good MI looks like. Participants will also be steered towards appropriate materials, websites and encouraged to engage in an MI community of practice for their continued post-workshop learning.

The workshop will be highly participative in style. A mixture of didactic presentation, small group discussion, DVDs, demonstration and skills practice will aid adult learning, enabling participants to gain experience through demonstration and practice.

Please note: In order to attend this workshop, a two day introductory MI training needs to be completed prior to attending the advancing practice session.
