Motivational Interviewing for Supervisors

1 August - 2 August


Practical strategies for using and coaching MI in supervision

This two day professional development event is for supervisors, team leaders and managers with a foundation in Motivational Interviewing.

The workshop examines how MI can be helpful in the context of providing professional supervision, while respecting that there are other skills and functions of a supervisory role as well as limitations to what MI can offer in a supervision setting.

The workshop also offers practical strategies to support and coach others in learning MI, including identifying priority areas to work on, encouraging self reflection and self monitoring of the use of MI skills, building on strengths and developing competence. And that we may well be coaching others while we feel that we are still working on our own MI skills.

Facilitators are Helen Mentha and Dr Kylie McKenzie. Both are clinical psychologists and highly experienced MI trainers. Helen worked for many years in AOD before specialising in training and supervising MI. Kylie worked for many years as a clinician, supervisor and leader in public health.
