Introduction to Motivational Interviewing FREE sessions

We are pleased to announce that we have been able to secure some FREE Motivational Interviewing training sessions for Families First partners.

The target audience for the sessions are practitioners from all agencies working with children, young people and their families and the aim is to gain an overview of a motivational skills approach.

The Objectives are:

  • To gain a practical understanding of Motivational Interviewing as a strengths-based approach
  • To understand the cycle of behaviour change, and how it can help make conversations more productive
  • To explore situations where there is resistance and ambivalence to change

The half days sessions will be run on the following dates:-

3 December 2020 – 2pm

7 December 2020 – 2pm

12 February 2021 – 9.30am

26 February 2021 – 9.30am

Spaces are limited, so please book early by emailing hscpcourses@hertfordshire.gov.uk quoting FF Partnership, and please cascade this to your teams where appropriate.
