Series 2 Episode 1 - Sponsored by Bethan Elisa Proofreading (@bethanelisa) and Handmade Home by Ruby (https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/HandmadeHomeByRuby)
Welcome to series 2 of The Agents of Hope Podcast.
In this episode, I talk to Dr. Cathy Atkinson, curriculum director at Manchester University training provider and Educational Psychologist, about her passion for Motivational Interviewing.
Cathy and I discuss her journey in psychology with Motivational Interviewing and how it has become a transcendent presence in her day to day practice. Cathy helps me to understand the history of the approach and the skills, spirit and hierarchal structure that helps practitioners to understand and apply it. We work through a motivational interviewing conversation in a real play which helped me to understand the skills required to facilitate the approach. We consider how the approach can be applied by Educational Psychologists and educational contexts.

It's also worth searching 'Miller motivational interviewing' as there are lots of examples of Bill Miller talking about the approach.
