It has proven particularly effective with stuck or entrenched people from a wide range of backgrounds.

This course maps the key factors that elicit change and demonstrates how Motivational Interviewing works alongside these forces. Drawing on both person centred and directive techniques, it offers practical skills to assist the workers to helps people articulate and recognise the need for change.
