  • Are you wanting to understand and strengthen your use of pūrākau and motivational interviewing techniques?

In this two day online training course on 1 and 2 May, Tipene Pickett will share knowledge about pūrākau (traditional Māori narratives of origin) and motivational interviewing (MI). 
You'll practice storytelling and engage in discussion to expand your understanding of how these narratives of origin can be applied to support change.  

Over the two days you'll work through the fundamentals of motivational interviewing:

  • Spirit of MI: Partnership, acceptance, compassion and evocation  
  • The four MI processes: engage, focus, evoke and plan  
  • The use of reflective listening to shape a conversation to resolve ambivalence and strengthen commitment for change
