Training for Those Working with Substance Users


Motivational Interviewing – Advanced

Usual course length: 1-2 days

Courses can be tailor-made from the following elements:

  • Recapping on the skills and techniques of MI, and discussing what has been beneficial, and what has been more difficult
  • Exercises to further sharpen these skills, including case studies and practice (particular focus on working with ambivalence & resistance)
  • Helping clients 'on the cusp' of change, but not quite able to achieve it
  • Deciding when MI would be the most useful approach, overcoming barriers to implementing MI, and where other skills might be more useful

NB. The course structure necessiates the completion of a pre-learning exercise (case study), high levels of participation, and role-play.

All our our Substance Use courses are mapped to the relevant DANOS Units.
