This workshop will be of interest to people in diverse settings & circumstances where conversations about change are an everyday reality. It will include a basic overview of motivational interviewing (MI) and then turn to intermediate level practice and discussion. If this is your first introduction to MI we would advise you to prepare, and can help you with this task. The workshop will include:

  • Overview of MI and its foundations in good practice in organisations, services, teams and educational settings.
  • Review of key topics like core skills, change language and the four processes in change conversations (engage, focus, evoke and plan).
  • Opportunity to practice skills
  • Exploring of hot topics including MI-consistent advice giving, culture change in organisations, brief conversations about change and how our emotional state effects the progress and outcome of conversations.

A wide range of learning methods will be used to create an enjoyable atmosphere for learning and sharing ideas. These will include demonstration, video observation, brief content lectures, discussion and focused practice.
