Step 3 (Advanced) Motivational Interviewing

~~This 3 day course is run in BIrmingham,in association with the Gestalt centre in London. It aims to give participants who have already completed introductory and intermediate courses 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.Prospective participants will be expected to show evidence of attendance at Step 1 and 2 training before attending Step 3.. The workshop is taught by 2 highly experienced trainers and restricted to 18 participants. Competence will be assessed on the basis of a recorded 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 the 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.
