Motivational Interviewing & Change Theory Practice
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a client-oriented, collaborative, evidence-informed approach to counselling which is focused on exploring and resolving ambivalence and enhancing motivation to change. Students study the application of MI in addictions and mental health. Practical skills, concepts and essential strategies of MI are integrated into clinical practice in order to promote behaviour change and maintenance of gains. Through case studies, demonstrations and experiential learning, students develop their MI skills.
