A Crash Course in Motivational Interviewing
This is a 3-hour training designed for vet practices as an introduction to MI, which is an evidence-based approach to having better conversations with farmers about change.
The course can be delivered online or in-person at your practice.
This training is for vets who:
want to see their farmers more engaged in health planning.
want to have better uptake of their advice.
love learning and enjoy building new skills to support their clinical expertise.
are new to MI, OR
have had previous training in MI and want a refresher.
‘I just wanted to say a big thank you for your presentation last week!
It was a great refresher for me with my previous knowledge and I know that my colleagues who were new to MI appreciated it too.’

Learning and building new skills can feel tough. It's normal to feel vulnerable in the process, particularly when it comes to communication.
Since we first started training communication skills, we recognised the benefits of having support as a follow up from a single training session. That's why we offer one-to-one support so you can share your experiences, ask for feedback and reflect on your progress. Building skills requires practice, persistence and patience.
