The University of Sydney
Bosch Lecture Theatre (Bosch 1A) Entry via Carillon Ave
City Road, Camperdown NSW 2008
12 - 13 November 2012
This evidence based, hands on, two day workshop
is directed at Health Care Professionals who wish to keep up to date, and work more effectively
with their clients to improve treatment outcome.
Creating better client engagement and greater change
"People are generally better persuaded by reasons which they themselves discover,
than those which have come into their mind by others" - Blaise Pascal Pensees (1670)
At these 2 day workshops Dr Miller will present the latest research findings and treatment
approaches for dealing with a multitude of client presentations, he will visit and practice core
tenets of MI and integrate this knowledge with exciting new changes.
In 1983, Dr. William R. Miller introduced the method of motivational interviewing (MI) as a way of strengthening clients’
own motivation for change. It spread rapidly into addiction treatment, health care, corrections, mental health and social
work, and is now taught in at least 44 languages. Dr. Miller’s visit to Australia coincides with the once-in-a-decade
release of a new edition of his classic book Motivational Interviewing with Dr. Stephen Rollnick. At this workshop Dr Miller
will introduce a novel four-process model for understanding, practicing, and teaching MI. His workshop, suitable for newcomers
as well as those skilled in MI, will introduce the important new developments and updates reflected in their 3rd edition,
through a blend of lecture, demonstrations, and experiential practice.
The clinical style of MI has broad applicability across professions, problems, and cultures. It addresses a fundamental aspect
of human nature – ambivalence about change – that is a common obstacle in many areas of practice. MI calls forth the person’s own
motivation and resources for change. Instead of implying, “I have what you need, and I will give it to you,” the MI practitioner
communicates that “You have what you need, and together we will find it.” Beyond describing and demonstrating the clinical method
of MI, this workshop provides clear guidelines for how to learn MI from the best teachers: your own clients or patients.
