The motivational interviewing approach is a client-centred, directive communication style. It is applicable to a variety of professions and is currently widely used in the following sectors:

  • Health
  • Social services
  • Education
  • Voluntary sector support services 
  • Probation and prison services
  • Youth work and young people services


The most effective way to learn the motivational interviewing approach is through a three-day workshop. This consists of two consecutive training days with an opportunity to embed skills learnt into practice, prior to the consolidation final day. Research shows this is the most effective way of incorporating skills into current practice.


However, introductory presentations and shorter workshops can be arranged.
