Behaviour Change Counselling: Motivational Interviewing

News about a forthcoming course likely to be of interest to health psychology trainees – and others.

One Day course in Motivational Interviewing – Coventry University – June 2016

This course is suitable for anyone working within an environment that supports people with change-behaviour such as public health practitioners, clinical, sport and health psychologists, social workers, nurses and allied health and social care professionals. The course is also suitable for academics and students who are interested in developing their clinical skills. No previous experience is necessary. A CPD certificate is included.

About the Trainer: Dr Charlotte Hilton is a Chartered Psychologist with a background in clinical and health psychology and public health. Charlotte works across a range of health and social care settings delivering quality, evidence-based training and research services including support with the evaluation of health interventions. Charlotte is a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT).

What to Expect from the Course: This 1-day course will help trainees to understand how to support people to change a variety of health related behaviours such as physical inactivity and smoking for example. Training comprises a variety of learning methods such as short lectures, workshops, video consultation examples and plenty of opportunity to practice developing skills. Examples of the application of MI to the specific settings in which trainees work are also provided to help contextualise the skills. Trainees will complete the course with a good understanding of the process of behaviour change and the skills needed to start to integrate MI into routine conversations with clients/patients.
