Event description

Description

This session will be an introduction to the processes and techniques of Motivational Interviewing (MI). MI uses a guiding style to engage with patients, clarify their strengths and aspirations, evoke their own motivations for change, and promote autonomy of decision making.

What will attendees learn at this event / workshop?

There are differing approaches to the wording of the stages involved in MI but all focus on the basic premise of:

  • Resisting the urge to offer solutions
  • Understanding where the individual is in relation to awareness of their condition/ treatment options
  • Listening to the individual’s expressed opinions and thoughts, and then
  • Encouraging engagement to support whatever next steps need to be made to move them into a better position as understood by them - not the health professional.

Further information:

Refreshments are provided but not lunch.
