Motivational Interviewing 17/3/2020 & 18/3/2020

Aimed at social workers in Children's Services.

Learning Outcomes

  • Learn about this effective, evidence based approach to overcome the ambivalence which keeps children, young people or their family members from making the desired changes in their lives.
  • Appreciate the value of a collaborative alliance between practitioner and client which focusses on the client’s intrinsic motivation and values.
  • Practice the principles of motivational interviewing e.g. expressing empathy through reflective listening; developing discrepancy between clients’ goals or values and their present behaviour; avoid argument and direct confrontation; adjust to client ambivalence rather than opposing it directly; and support self-efficacy and optimism. •Learn about open-ended questioning, affirmations, summarising, reflective listening, sustain talk/discord (formerly called rolling with resistance) and change talk.
