Course Description

A one day study day designed to introduce you to motivational interviewing principles and skills in order to increase the effectiveness of routine healthcare interactions.

The day will involve small group work, exercises and role play.

At the end of the day you will:

  • be introduced to the basic philosophy, principles and skills of motivational interviewing
  • have an increased awareness of the emerging evidence based for motivational interviewing and its utilisation across a range of health conditions
  • be able to identify the key principles of motivational interviewing and also to recognise what it is not.

Each study day has a number of NHS funded places, with support of Health Education England across Yorkshire and the Humber (HEE Y&H). 

Funded places are available to employees of NHS trusts and primary care staff within Yorkshire and the Humber and to anyone working in an area which provides placements for University of York nursing or midwifery students. This also applies to nursing staff working in the ambulance service, prison service and hospices. Places may be available to social services staff working in a healthcare environment. This is agreed on a case-by-case basis.

We therefore do not charge when you book your place, but will contact you should you not meet the required criteria for a funded place. Non funded places are charged at £100.00, payable in advance.

Please follow the booking process all the way through. You should receive a confirmation email. Please note that your booking is not confirmed until you have received a confirmation email. If you experience a problem during the online booking process please contact Jane Milsom on 01904 321392.
