June 2016: 2 day Motivational Interviewing Workshop

In June 2016, the LPA held a 2 day training workshop on Motivational interviewing by Dr. Antoine Doueihy.

Dr Douaihy is Professor of Psychiatry and Medicine and Medical Director, Addiction Medicine Services and Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship at the Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Medicine.

Motivational Interviewing is a psychotherapeutic approach initially developed by William Miller and Stephen Rollnick for use with clients struggling with addiction problems. It is a collaborative non-confrontational approach aimed at instigating motivation and behavioral change. It has now been applied and researched for use in a range of mental illnesses and physical health problems.
