2.For those who might be interested, the Inner East Community Health Service is providing the following training:
- Workshop: Introduction to Motivational Interviewing
Motivational Interviewing is an evidence-based approach that provides a framework for assisting clients to increase motivation and commitment for positive behaviour change.Â It is particularly useful for clients who experience ambivalence or reluctance toward engaging in change or treatment.
I have been training professionals in Motivational Interviewing for over six years and inÂ April this year I had the privilege of being trained by Dr William Miller and Dr Theresa Moyers at theÂ Motivational Interviewing Training New Trainers workshop in Chicago.Â This workshop incorporates the current understanding of what worksÂ in Motivational Interviewing, and provides the opportunity to learn and practice fundamental skills of the approach.
Please pass on the information to any colleagues or networks that you think may be interested in attending, and feel free to contact me for further information on the details below.
