Target Group - Individuals who have direct contact with clients
Motivational Interviewing describes an organised way of talking to people about change, which helps them to recognise their problems and begin to address them.
It is effective with a wide range of problem behaviours, usually about which the client has mixed feelings, from drinking and substance misuse, to medication adherence, to parenting strategies.
Course aims and objectives:
- The underlying spirit of motivational interviewing.
- The link between motivational interviewing (Miller and Rollnick) and the stages of change model (Prochaska et al).
- Reflective Listening and the client centred OARS skills.
- Identifying the goals the client wants to move towards.
- Generating change talk (where the client talks about changing) and responding to it in a way that develops and encourages it.
- Traps to avoid when talking to people about change.
- Responding to sustain talk (where the client talks about sustaining the way they are right now) in a way that doesn't encourage it.
- Timing, and negotiating a plan of change.
- Strengthening commitment to change.
- Developing your motivational interviewing skill and practise after the course.
