Motivational interviewing for enhancing change talk

Recently updated to include all the latest advancements from the 3rd Edition of Miller and Rollnick’s (2013) Motivational Interviewing: Helping people change, Motivational interviewing for enhancing change talk is a series of workshops that focuses on conversations for change. Motivational Interviewing is a collaborative, goal-oriented style of communication designed to strengthen personal motivation for and commitment to change. It is a person-centred, guided method for evoking change talk and enhancing intrinsic motivation. It is a model to describe how people change certain health-related behaviours (such as stopping smoking or starting physical activity) and examines an individual’s own fears and difficulties in order to resolve the issue. Participants will develop an understanding of motivational interviewing and key strategies.

Practitioners who participated in earlier workshops could also benefit from engaging with developments in theory and practice.
