One day Training Workshop on Motivational Interviewing

2 July 2016


Psychbigyaan Network Nepal (PNN) conducted one day workshop on the theme of “Motivational Interviewing” on 2nd of July 2016 with venue support from Global Peace Youth Corp (GPYC) Nepal. The workshop was facilitated by Ms. Priti Pun, Masters in Mental Health Sciences with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) specialization from Flinders University Australia.


Motivational Interviewing (MI) was developed by William R. Miller and Stephen Rollnick and is described as a style of patient centred collaborative counselling which facilitates the change in health related behaviours. MI is a directive approach, not in a confrontational or ‘pushy’ way, but in a quiet eliciting style which allows the person to move towards change rather than it being externally imposed. Originally developed for use with people who had problems with alcohol and drugs, it has now been applied to a wide range of problem areas such as public health, mental health, medical school and even corporate systems as it is helpful in settings where there is resistance to change. The principles are simple yet less easy to apply in practice; the workshop will highlight the importance of MI and its application. The workshop was targeted towards counselors, therapists, social workers or allied health professionals, and anyone who are involved in change or motivational talk with their client or patients.



29 enthusiastic participants from different field like nursing, teaching, psycho social support, rehabilitation of trafficked women and students of psychology participated the workshop.



The workshop was started at 11:00 sharp after registration which was started from 10:00 in the morning. 6 hour-long workshop included 45 mins lunch break and 5 min tea-break in between. The workshop was conducted on the module of theoretical and practical activities conducted by Facilitator and helped by PNN members. The program ended with the Thank you Note from PNN to all the participants and facilitator Ms. Pun.


Overall, the workshop on “Motivational Interviewing” was successful as clear by the positive feedback of the participants. However, one of the common feedback was that the workshop should be extended and make it a 2 or 3 days workshop as the contents were really useful and it would help to go through them in even more detail with even more role-plays and practices.

Psychbigyaan Network Nepal (PNN) would like to thank Ms. Priti Pun for facilitating the workshop, GPYC Nepal for the venue and all the participants for making the workshop a success. PNN is encouraged and committed to conduct even more fruitful and large-scale workshops in the near future.
