Motivational Interviewing Training

Target audience:

This training is being delivered by the Educational Psychology team to members of The Hub School staff and we would like to open it up to secondary school teaching and pastoral staff who have emotional wellbeing as a key part of their role, working directly with young people.

Outline of event:

Motivational Interviewing is a ‘style’ or ‘method’ that aims to enhance a young person’s motivation to change behaviour by exploring and resolving their ambivalence about change. It looks at clarifying a young person’s strengths and aspirations and evokes their own motivation for change.

This training will develop your knowledge of Motivational Interviewing ‘spirit’, skills and processes in order to support the young people you work with to facilitate change.

Learning and Teaching Outcomes:

• Support your thinking in how you can apply Motivational Interviewing spirit and skills to your work with young people.
• Identify and practise the core skills of Motivational Interviewing
• Understand the processes involved in Motivational Interviewing and how they can be used with young people.

We expect that all CPD will involve integral evaluation processes


It is not a pre-requisite, however if you would like to find out more about motivational interviewing in advance, the British Medical Journal (BMJ) offer a free certificated online course taking approximately an hour to complete:
