(Please note - following this initial 1-day training, half-day Motivational Interviewing: Refresh & Practice Development sessions are avilable to help practitioners further develop their skills - see the website for dates and details.)
Motivational interviewing is a leading approach to increase motivation and commitment to change. It was first developed in the alcohol field, but as they had identified that there was no specific addiction psychology, it has been developed in a wide range of areas including social work, offending, mental health and homelessness fields. 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. As such, it is an effective primer to increase engagement with people who have not yet achieved a sufficient level of commitment and move them into action with confrontation. As such, it can inform and develop the 3 conversations approach by increasing engagement, develop potential people strengths and create self-directed motivation for change.
Who is the Course For?: Motivational Interviewing is useful for a wide range of social issues. Its primary focus is on igniting motivation to change, and so it is helpful when people are stuck in problems and not advancing in change. As such it is helpful in all change and recovery based services such as mental health, substance misuse, offending social work, domestic violence, supported housing, young people’s services, family work and more besides.
Method of Delivery: The training programme comes with an extensive booklet for each participant. The training course is highly interactive, even during presentations. It uses a wide variety of learning approaches including presentations, pairs and small group work exercises and self-assessment. The course is also supported with free e-learning and further resources to re-cap, review and refresh learning.
The FREEDOM method Personal Development Model® is designed to help you build confidence, wellbeing and achieve your personal and professional goals. This interactive one day workshop will teach you the stages of the model and give you an opportunity to work on your goals throughout the day. The group is then encouraged to provide you with 99 days of ongoing informal support and encouragement to achieve your goals.
Please note if you have previously attended Women in Leadership, this workshop covers the same model of the Freedom method.
These 50 minute coaching sessions with coaches will assist council staff in coming up with strategies and action plans to maintain and build their wellbeing and resilience. Unlike counselling which provides a safe space to explore worries and concerns, these confidential coaching sessions will help staff come up with individual plans to help them build their resilience, understand what they can do to enhance their wellbeing and overcome current and future obstacles. There are activities and exercises that wellbeing coaches can also give people to work through in their own time if they would find it useful.
Please note these sessions will be delivered by skype or telephone. Your coach will contact you to confirm the best method for you.
