This session builds on the strategies introduced in the “Motivational Interviewing” workshop. Motivational Interviewing can be “simple but not easy” to integrate into your regular counselling style – this highly interactive workshop is an opportunity to develop and practice these skills more extensively. An emphasis will be placed on case discussions and practice, so you are encouraged to bring your own challenging case examples for us to work with. Workshop content includes: reflective strategies revisited: the art of strategic reflection, dealing with resistance in groups and individuals, motivational interviewing – when you only have 20 minutes and case consultation and role play.
