Motivational Interactions Workshop

AP Psychology & Consulting Services in partnership with the Australian Rehabilitation Practitioners Association (ARPA) is pleased to announce the delivery of a Motivational Interactions (MI) workshop in Sydney.

What is Motivational Interactions?

Motivational Interactions (MI) is an evidence-based practice that addresses motivational issues involved in gaining and maintaining better health, and return to employment for persons with injuries and disabilities MI guides professionals in effectively engaging with their clients to uncover and strengthen their intrinsic motivation for change and action. MI is widely recognised as an important engagement strategy for people working in a case management capacity – working with a range of injured clients/workers pertaining to resistance, ambivalence to change, motivation, development and return to work.

About the Workshop

The MI workshop will help you develop the necessary skills to effectively work with injured clients/workers presenting with a range of barriers relating to change, in order to better facilitate positive return to work and life outcomes.

By undertaking the workshop you will develop the necessary skills to be able to:

  • explore the ambivalence about your clients/workers ability
to change
  • examine the pros and cons about change
  • build confidence and the core communication skills necessary 
to work effectively with injured clients/workers
  • understand motivation and its key drivers
  • help promote client autonomy, engagement and choice

The public workshop offering creates the unique opportunity for organisations to send individual or small groups of Case Managers to Senior Claims Operational Staff, to undergo the foundational skills training. In running this format of workshop over the past 5 years, we have found that the dynamic mix of participants creates an eclectic learning environment and expands the range of scenarios of participants navigate through and improving their ability to liaise with multiple stakeholders in the injury management process.
