Study hypothesis

Motivational interviewing (MI) is a counselling intervention to help develop their motivation for change. The aim of this study is to evaluate effective methods of delivering low-cost work place-based MI training that encourages reflective practice to people who have been trained in MI but do not necessarily put it into practice. How can we deliver training to ensure MI is used in the workplace?
