Motivational Interviewing

Date: 30 April 2018

Time: 09:00 to 16:00

Education Centre, Broadgreen Hospital, Liverpool

Event Overview:

Motivational Interviewing (MI) uses a guiding style to engage with patients, clarify their strengths and aspirations, evoke their own motivations for change, and promote autonomy of decision making.

What will attendees learn at this event / workshop?

There are differing approaches to the wording of the stages involved in MI but all focus on the basic premise of:

  • Resisting the urge to offer solutions
  • Understanding where the individual is in relation to awareness of their condition / treatment options
  • Listening to the individual’s expressed opinions and thoughts, and then
  • Encouraging engagement to support whatever next steps need to be made to move them into a better position, as understood by them, not the health professional.
