Masterclass – Motivating Behaviour Change

21st June 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

Masterclass – Motivating Behaviour Change – Techniques for Mediators from Addiction Therapy

This workshop run by Jeremy Scuse (Catalyst Mediation – please see biography below) will consider the techniques successfully used by experts in the UK and US to change some of the most ingrained negative behaviour – addictions.

Motivational Interviewing (MI) has many similarities in tone and approach to mediation and has some excellent questioning techniques and ideas of how to help a client make the decision to change their behaviour – for themselves. It is one of the techniques voted “most useful” in our training courses over the last 2 years.

Mediators will receive notes on the topic before the session and links to the wider subject and have an opportunity to share their own experiences of a client’s intractable behaviour and practice how MI techniques might have offered an alternative approach.

This workshop is suitable for new and experienced mediators in any mediation discipline.

A light lunch will be provided at 1pm.

I have always been interested in what makes people tick.  My career started with a degree in Psychology and then 25 years in senior international marketing, followed by 10 years setting up my own companies and acting as a Non Executive Director for entrepreneurs.
