Motivational Interviewing Training Courses

Training in:
(A) Motivational Interviewing, and
(B) The Stages of Change.

APT is a leading provider of training in these associated topics. Originally aimed mainly at helping substance misuse, motivational interviewing and the stages of change both target the ability to sense 'where the patient is at' and to respond effectively. For this reason they represent fundamental clinical skills which are important to know about and to master. All of the training is accredited by APT and delegates receive the relevant level of APT’s accreditation on completing the course(s).

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing, and how to use it effectively.

A 2-day course.

This course is available Onsite (we come to you and deliver it to a group of up to 15 delegates).

In Motivational Interviewing, Miller and Rollnick describe an organised and systematic way of helping people to recognise their problems and to do something about them. Principally it addresses behaviour about which the client has mixed feelings: drinking and substance misuse for example, but a suprising array of common mental and physical health problems as well. Issues from taking psychoactive medication through to eating more healthily can all be addressed using motivational interviewing.

Motivational Interviewing and The Stages of Change

Motivational Interviewing and The Stages of Change.

A 3-day course.

This course is available Onsite (we come to you), Open (you come to us in Leicester), or Online.

We believe that it works well to combine Motivational Interviewing and The Stages of Change, so this course aims to acquaint participants with both the Stages of Change model and Motivational Interviewing techniques and, specifically, to show how Motivational Interviewing techniques apply to moving people through the stages of change.

The Stages of Change

Using the Stages of Change model in clinical practice.

A 2-day course.

This course is available Onsite (we come to you and deliver it to a group of up to 15 delegates). 

Prochaska, Norcross and DiClemente describe the Stages of Change through which people progress if they are to change their behaviour or emotional responses. Being unaware of those stages, or being unable to identify which stage a person is at and what response you might best make, causes frustration for all concerned. The professional may think the client is being deliberately difficult, and the client may feel that the professional is unempathic and ineffective. Conversely, awareness and responsiveness to 'where the patient is at' can accelerate therapy dramatically.
