Motivational interviewing

This training was developed by the Direction des dépendances et de de l’itinérance du ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux du Québec (MSSS), in partnership with the Centre Dollar-Cormier.

Its overall objective is to enable interveners to apply the motivational approach to promote self-motivated change.


The first day and a half covers the basic content of the approach. Two other half-days, given two to three months later, focus on the experiences of interveners, to reinforce and continue their learning.

Target audience :

  • Health personnel
  • Interveners who work with at-risk youth
  • NNADAP interveners
  • MCH interveners
  • Mental health interveners
  • Interveners in general
