‘Motivational interviewing’ is the name given to a particular type of therapeutic conversation, originally developed by William R Miller in the USA to help people change their substance misuse.

This learning resource is designed primarily for people who already understand and practice motivational interviewing and want materials to help them to teach others.

Over the years we have published several collections of video clips. In this resource we have pulled together all those specifically relating to drug and alcohol problems and added the worksheets to help trainers and individual learners to use the clips to best effect.

Showing Toni Gilligan, Pip Mason and Steve Rollnick using motivational interviewing with actors in unscripted roleplays.

On the DVD are videos of six counselling or key working situations with people who have drug or alcohol related problems (over 90 minutes of video material.)

On the accompanying CD is a series of worksheets to be completed while watching the DVD. The worksheets draw attention to how the principles of MI are being demonstrated in each video.

As well as being an aid for trainers, individual students may find these materials useful to consolidate their learning of MI through a process of private study. However this resource is not intended as a substitute for reading in more depth about this approach or for attending a training event which offers supervised practice.
