Advanced Motivational Interviewing

6 day course is run in association with the Gestalt Centre in London. It aims to give participants who have already completed an introductory course on motivational interviewing the opportunity to develop the effective use of their skills in their everyday practice and to receive a certificate of competence in MI. The workshop is restricted to 18 participants. Competence will be assessed on the basis of a taped case study which will be coded by one assessor according to the Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity code (MITI) and assessed in a more narrative way by a second marker. Successful students will be awarded a certificate from the Gestalt Centre in London who recognise it as part of their short course programme. The course takes place in 3 blocks of 2 days; 30 Sep/1st October,2/3 November and 30 Nov/1st December 2017. By the end of the course participants will be able to • Describe when to use motivational interviewing (and when not to) • Conduct an in-depth assessment of a client's motivation • Use advanced listening skills to support clients' self-confrontation • Use a range of strategies to 'roll with resistance' and manage discord • Demonstrate an understanding of the key principles of behaviour change
