Bespoke MI training

Motivational interviewing involves the use of conversation skills that promote change, in the service of the well-being of someone you are helping.  Learning MI is a journey. The skills are used in everyday conversation, but are often underused and rusty.  Steve can provide a range of training and support options.


Steve can also provide webinars on motivation, behaviour change and motivational interviewing that involve an overview and live demonstration of the skills involved.

On-site training

Steve delivers training on-site in a wide range of settings, cultures and countries.
Enquiries can be made here.

Free resource for trainers in MI: The Art of Teaching MI

An old friend from San Francisco, Steve Berg-Smith, put decades of experience as a trainer into this handbook on the spirit and skills involved in working with groups of people to learn MI. There’s even a competency checklist for rating yourself and others in an appendix.  Then he gave it away free, and you can download it here
