Course Description and Details:-


This online course is based on the latest edition of Miller and Rollnick’s book Motivational Interviewing.

An evidence-based therapy, it teaches an organised way of helping clients who are or appear to be reluctant to make changes. Basically, it’s a way of having a conversation about change. You will learn how to support a person’s changes in diet, smoking, substance abuse, exercise, medication usage, and other mental health and wellbeing concerns; how to generate motivation in people who are not motivated; how to help your clients form a constructive plan for change; and how to constructively respond to a client’s resistance to change.

This is a 6.5-hour course, with engaging videos, audios, theories, and a downloadable MI book that will be a valuable resource for ongoing use.

You will learn the 4 step process in MI, and how to effectively use the skills of O-A-R-S to engage clients and help them find their own motivation for change without cajoling or using logical argument.
