Learning outcomes

 

  • Appreciate the value of a collaborative alliance between practitioner and client which focusses on the client’s intrinsic motivation and values.
  • Practice the principles of motivational interviewing such as: expressing empathy through reflective listening; developing discrepancy between clients’ goals or values and their present behaviour; avoid argument and direct confrontation; adjust to client resistant rather than opposing it directly; and support self-efficacy and optimism.
  • Know about open-ended questioning, affirmations, summarising, reflective listening, rolling with resistance, change talk and complementing change talk.
  • Consider how to use these skills as part of practice to encourage children, young people and their families to explore their ambivalence in problem areas, and work towards positive change

Description

This course aims at looking at a directive, person-centred structured approach to working directly with children, young people, families and adults alongside health, education, police, and social care.
