Description

Based on Miller and Rollnick's latest book, this course describes an organised way of helping people to recognise their problems and to do something about them. Principally it addresses behaviour about which the client has mixed feelings: drinking and substance misuse for example, but a surprising array of common mental and physical health problems as well. Issues from taking psychoactive medication through to eating more healthily can all be addressed using motivational interviewing.

The APT has mastered the delivery of training in Motivational Interviewing 'online anytime'; providing top class training you can access right now or any time that suits you. No longer do you have to wait for 'the start date' of the course.

"Really good course- clearly presented and clinical context given throughout"

Motivational Interviewing training from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), includes APT accreditation, certification, and resources. And the APT has perfected the art of delivering it in a way that makes it appear simple and easy to apply.

"Great training, really interesting and well structured."

With a wealth of clinical experience, Dr William Davies presents the course with relevant stories and examples of using motivational interviewing and an engaging lightness which perfectly complements the far reaching nature of the therapy.


 

"I am delighted by this course. Dr Davies and his dry wit have been wonderful companions. Will buy and undertake others."

This course gives you a thorough introduction to motivational interviewing, it is APT-accredited, and gives you access to important resources for you to use post-course. Whether you simply want to broaden your knowledge or become a committed practitioner of motivational interviewing, this course is for you. The course can be studied by teams or individuals and can also be completed as part of The APT Diploma in Psychological Therapies.

Objectives

Motivational Interviewing describes an organised way of helping people to recognise their problems and to do something about them. Principally it addresses behaviour about which the client has mixed feelings: drinking and substance misuse for example, but a surprising array of common mental and physical health problems as well. Issues from taking psychoactive medication through to eating more healthily can all be addressed using motivational interviewing.

This course is based on the latest edition of Miller and Rollnick's book so covers the four broad components of skill, namely: Knowledge and Spirit, Engaging, Focusing and Evoking, and Planning and Integration. In addition it looks at the relationship between Motivational Interviewing and The Stages of Change (the work of DiClemente et al). And finally it covers how to develop your Motivational Interviewing skills and practise after the course.


 

Course Subjects:

  • Definition and description of Motivational Interviewing.

  • The underlying spirit of motivational interviewing.
  • Reflective Listening and the client centred OARS skills.
  • Identifying the goals the client wants to move towards.
  • Exchanging information and providing advice.
  • Generating change talk (where the client talks about changing) and responding to it in a way that develops and encourages it.
  • Traps to avoid in early stages of therapy.
  • Responding to sustain talk (where the client talks about sustaining the way they are right now) in a way that doesn't encourage it.

Amazing course and have learned so much on how to approach people with certain issues and help them to acknowledge the problem , why, how , when, and also for me to be able to now identify the different stages of change and be able to recognise change talk . By using my 3 favourite words will allow the person to talk about their problem more freely in a safe and respectful environment, and by building mutual trust and respect will help the person to want to change or improve and will be open to discussing a plan to be able to achieve their goals. Within my field of Diabetes , I regualry discuss common issues around diet and lifestyle , and see many people who may be in denial , or see nothing wrong in what they are doing , yet their diabetes is very poorly controlled which can develop into very serious complications . With having completed this course , i will now be able to discuss things in a way that will encourage people to talk about their issue, why they feel it has got to this stage , reflect back on their life previously, and help them to think about whether they would feel any different if their diabetes was more controlled by the person feeling more motivated to improve things and improve their life. Of course other factors can also inhibit successful lifestyle change ie depression / illness . therefore this course will allow me to talk to the person and to find out the causes/ thoughts/ feelings as to why this problem started in the first place . I just cannot wait to put it into practice . Thank you :)

I so enjoyed this course! It achieved a balance of a relaxed steady pace, whilst providing lots of detail. I enjoyed the case studies, audio files and videos. The tutor was great to listen to, entertaining and inspiring as well as giving lots of information. I enjoyed his real life examples and case studies
