Coaching and Feedback in Advanced Motivational Interviewing

An in-depth exploration of how Motivational Interviewing can be utilised in practice and improved.

This course will explore the application of Motivational Interviewing in the participants’ work context.

Over an extended period of months (one half-day per month), participants will receive individualised coaching from a Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT) member. The process starts and ends with the submission of a recorded interaction with a service user, which is assessed and coded using the Motivational Interviewing Assessment (MIA-Step) tool, to establish levels of Motivational Interviewing proficiency.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the session participants will be able to:

  • perform Motivational Interviewing-consistent practice within their own work context
  • identify personal strengths of Motivational Interviewing practice and developmental areas through coding, personal reflection and feedback

Aimed At

Drug workers, housing/ homelessness workers, social workers, GPs, nurses, teachers and mental health workers.
