Motivational Interviewing Skills for Working with Victims of and Perpetrators of Domestic Violence (2 Day Programme)
What is Motivational Interview (MI)?
You will be aware of the different definition of MI and ours is no different- basically, it’s about holding that particular conversation with clients about change.
We believe that our MI intervention offers a distinct alternative to other programmes because the social worker can deliver it during their routine work with the parents. It can be completed on a one-to-one basis with clients if they are assessed as suitable.
Our MI course has been developed to complement our training on Coercive Control and Narcissistic Abuse. It is essential that you attend the domestic violence course before participating in the MI training.
On this course, you will learn:
– About the key concepts of MI
– The Fundamental skills of MI
– The critical skills you will need to elicit behavioural change by helping clients to examine, understand and work through their ambivalence
– How to put MI skills into practice (opportunities to practice)
– How to tailor your intervention to meet individual client’s needs.
– How to work with clients to build their confidence to move forward.
This course is about preparing skilled individuals to work with clients to make positive changes. The person must have participated in the Coercive Control and Narcissistic Abuse training as they will need to help the client to understand their lived experience.
