You will need to Login or Create an Account before registering for this event.

Helping professionals are often required to have discussions with people about making changes to that person’s lifestyle or behaviours. Have you ever wondered why or how conversations inspire change?

If you are a helping professional looking for answers to these questions, the communication style called Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a technique you will want to explore with us in this course.

We have created this introduction to MI, using the latest research from the new 3rd Edition of Motivational Interviewing by W.R. Miller and S. Rollnick. By completing the course, you will be able to describe MI and how it can be used in brief conversations.

  • Describe the nature of ambivalence about change
