Open to all sexual health staff
What Is Motivational Interviewing?
MI is a way of working that helps sexual health practitioners ‘come alongside’ and elicit an individual’s own reasons for change. MI helps the practitioner to engage and reflect healthier sexual health choices where clients feel:
• ambivalent when considering taking medication such as antibiotics or ART.
• need help in making decisions about contraception
• concerned about their level of risk taking eg recreational drugs or the sex they are having
The training will be delivered live, via Zoom. There will be discussions and a chance to work together using the techniques with trainers.
MI Day 1: Saturday 24th April 2021 9.30-16.15: Will cover the motivational interviewing and communication styles to use when undertaking discussions about behaviour change.
MI Day 2: Saturday 22nd May 2021 9.30-16.15: You will have had some time to use the learnt skills and come back to review the technique and develop further. This will enable practitioners to elicit, recognise and respond to 'change talk'; and focus and plan for behaviour change.
NB: Day 1 can be a “stand alone” day, but has to be completed if you wish to book Day 2
