Motivational interviewing (MI) is a person-centred, goal-oriented approach to helping people change through exploring and resolving ambivalence. Motivational interviewing was developed in the 1980’s by Drs William Miller and Stephen Rollnick to help clinicians working in addiction treatment to have a skill that would lead to better retention and engagement in changing problematic behaviours. Since then, MI has a been disseminated across a broad spectrum of behaviours in a wide range of clinical, educational, corrections, and sporting settings, as well as, in the area of organisational change. MI has fast become a cornerstone skill for anyone performing in a helping role, no matter the discipline or industry.

The trainer, Mikel Gellatly, has a background in social work, and psychotherapy. Mikel is also a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT), delivering MI training across a variety of social and health support domains in both Australia and Singapore.
