Behaviour change theory and Motivational Interviewing (MI) principles are often an area cited by healthcare professionals as something they would like more training on. The BJSM has collaborated with the PACC programme to develop this podcast and has invited Dr Tim Anstiss, an expert in this area, to explain some key behaviour change theory and motivational interviewing concepts in this conversation. Tim is a medical doctor specialising in behaviour change and wellbeing improvement. He trained as a trainer in motivational interviewing in the mid 90’s and has trained thousands of health and care professionals, managers and coaches in Motivational Interviewing, health coaching, brief interventions and shared decision making.
