About Motivational Interviewing Workshop


Motivational Interviewing (MI) is sweeping the world as a highly effective therapeutic approach used to empower people to make healthy behavioural choices. First developed by Professors Bill Miller and Steve Rollnick for use in the treatment of problem drinking, MI now has demonstrated effectiveness in assisting people to change a broad range of health behaviours. Motivational Interviewing has also been found to enhance the effectiveness of other treatments when used as a prelude to that treatment. With a broad evidence base and a well-defined style for interacting with clients, MI is applicable to clinical, counselling and health psychology practice.
