Motivational Interviewing is a communication style that facilitates behavioural change. In the physiotherapy setting patients will almost always need to commit to a form of change in their day to day actions, whether it is big or small. Understanding Motivational Interviewing (MI) and developing the communication skills and techniques that support this approach can help patients resolve any feelings of ambivalence to change as well as effectively bring about new behaviours.


This course aims to give you an overview of Motivational Interviewing as well as some fundamental skills to get you started.


This course is made up of a video, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Video
  2. Reading activity
