Motivational Interviewing is a useful framework for conversations about behaviour change. I came across MI when I was trained as part of a UK Department of Health research project assessing quit smoking initiatives. Steve has worked with a range of organisations and teams to develop meaningful use of MI in behaviour change and work based conversations.
He continues to deliver MI training to practitioners to post-graduate level.
Most interesting to many is the integration of MI and SFBT; recognising the overlapping elements of each approach and applying these in practice. I’ve borrowed a term from medicine to describe this as ‘Combination Therapy’ The Perfect Marriage
There are some examples of this in the resources section of the site.
