Event Details

This is an interactive study day facilitated by Et al Training suitable for all members of the Primary Care team.

If you spend your life explaining what your service users should, could, must or need to do then this is the course for you. Motivational interviewing is a style of communication that uses a guiding/reflective style to engage with people, clarify their strengths and aspirations, and utilise their own motivations for change, and promote independence of decision making.

This is an introduction to the principles, spirit and skills of motivational interviewing.

At the end of the day you will:

  • Gain an overview of an effective alternative to trying to be persuade people to change their behaviour.
  • Gain an appreciation of how people can use their own motivations and  find their solutions for behaviour change.
  • Tune our listening from “to be understood.” into “listening to understand”.
  • Discover how questions, reflections, affirmations and summaries can be used to facilitate a more effective conversation about behaviour change.
  • Observe how reflective listening can help when people’s emotions are running high.
