Health Behaviour Change and Motivational Interviewing Techniques Masterclass
Changing behaviour is a key concern within both public and private sector companies’ activities. Evidence shows the significant impact that Behaviour Change Techniques (BCTs) can have on some of the greatest health challenges facing society.
Behaviour change interventions may be delivered at societal, community/local, or individual level, using evidence-based components. BCTs are aligned to the specific context to improve aggregate outcomes across a range of target problems, settings, and providers.

Knowledge and understanding of Behaviour Change Techniques may be used at multiple organisational levels in the planning, delivery and assessment of health services, where patient/client behavioural compliance is necessary for the achievement of treatment outcomes. However, comprehensive and methodical processes must be adhered to thoroughly in devising a strategy for effective intervention.
Motivational interviewing is a relatively brief one-to-one encounter with patients/clients in which the practitioner’s ‘conversational skills’ may be used to evoke increased motivation and commitment in the patient/client. This may result in cohesive goal-setting, increased rates of behaviour change, and improved treatment outcomes for health behaviours such as:
- Physical activity and improving treatment protocol adherence
- Substance abuse/dependence
- Management of weight status and associated health conditions
- Family/paediatric health-risk behaviours – prevention and intervention
Motivational interviewing techniques can be delivered in patient/client encounters of as little as 15 minutes, with clinically significant effects.
Health practitioners and those involved with service development, planning and delivery will benefit from this training programme. It is particularly suited to those whose roles involve face-to-face consultation with patients/clients, for example GPs and clinicians, health trainers and health promotion professionals.
