Motivational Interviewing

Additional Info

  • Length: 2 Days
  • Where: Liverpool
  • Tutor: Pip Mason
People who use drugs often find making decisions to change aspects of their drug-taking behaviour very difficult, even when it is clearly causing harm.
 
A key task for workers is to support clients through ambivalence, and help them to make decisions that are right for them in their current situation. Motivational interviewing is a counselling approach designed for such situations.

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand the concept of motivation and how it relates to a model of behaviour change
  • To improve skills when assessing a drug user's motivation
  • To improve interventions with drug users who are resistant to changing risk behaviour
  • To improve interviewing and counselling skills to promote the client's wish to change
