with Terri Moyers & Stephen Rollnick

Two-day training workshop
Wednesday 12th & Thursday 13th July 2017

Terri Moyers will run this workshop supported on the second day by Stephen Rollnick. It will involve a clear step up from an introductory workshop, and involve solid attention to practising the finer skills, clarifying how motivation is expressed in language, time for in depth discussion of hot topics and some attention to rolling out MI across a service system. Terri will also provide updates on the latest research and clinical information about both the relational and technical components of MI, along with clarity about the status of empathy in clinical interviews. This is Terri’s third visit to Cardiff and her workshops have been consistently well-received.
