An individual’s motivation and self-confidence is a key factor for people with mental health conditions to actively engage in seeking employment.

Motivational Interviewing techniques can significantly improve motivation in people who find it hard to overcome barriers to returning to employment. The techniques focus on reducing internal barriers and negative attitudes, improving confidence and raising awareness of the benefits of employment to wellbeing by empowering the person and helping them to access their own resources. Research has demonstrated that motivational interviewing can significantly improve employment outcomes.

During the course you will learn and develop practical skills in the application of Motivational Interviewing techniques for helping people into employment including those who have been low in motivation and unable to overcome their barriers to work.

These courses are aimed at:

  • Employment Advisors and Vocational Support Workers
  • Secondary Care Mental Health Staff
  • Occupational Therapists and Health Professionals
  • Human Resource Managers and Occupational Health Staff

This course costs £295 + VAT at 20%. The course times are 10:00 - 16:30 on the first day and 09:30 - 16:00 on the second day.
