Motivational interviewing (MI) was developed by William Miller and Stephen Rollnick in the 1980s. It is a conversation or counselling style for helping people to face change and make plans to succeed. It is being used worldwide in diverse settings, including mental health, addiction, health care, offender management, schools, social care and sport.
Published randomised trials involving MI now exceed 1000 and Stephen Rollnick has been running workshops in Cardiff for over 20 years, designed to ensure a lively and interesting opportunity to develop skills with colleagues from diverse settings.
