MI Workshop



Thursday June 20th 2-5.30pm

River Lee Hotel, CORK

The society are delighted to welcome back Prof. Jen Irwin and Prof Don Morrow who last year ran a number of very successful MI training workshops across Ireland.

To build on this excellent foundation training, the ISDH will be running a half day workshop in CORK on Thursday 2oth June, at the River Lee Hotel in CORK, which is the day before their Annual Conference which looks at Obesity and Oral Health, allowing members to attend both events which compliment each other perfectly.

There is a growing body of evidence that MI is the most effective approach to achieve lasting health behaviour change, especially in resistant populations and has many applications within healthcare and has the potential to be very useful  for people working in a variety areas of health promotion. Jen and Don’s presentation style is experiential, educational, and highly interactive. They offer compelling, collaborative, and dynamic workshops and presentations on how to motivate people to make significant behavioural changes in their lives.

Their workshops are geared toward health professionals and groups who work on the front line with clients or patients who have chronic health issues such as weight management and obesity, stress, smoking cessation, physical in/activity, nutritional concerns, etc. The workshop is designed to be interactive with substantial “hands-on” training, rather than being lectured to.

This workshop will build on previous knowledge and skills in MI , so it will be most beneficial to people who are already familiar with the concepts underpinning MI and have some baseline skills.

On the booking form you will be asked about your own level of experience so that we can plan the group work in the workshop accordingly.
