Motivational Interviewing – Helping Prisoners Change

An interactive and engaging online MI course for Corrections Staff



“This way this course is put together makes it a highly accessible and practical tool for anyone wanting to learn how to better communicate with prisoners and ultimately help them to change. I had always considered this stuff to be for ‘academics’ only but this course has altered my perception. Now I can do it as well! Thanks”


The Helping Prisoners Change eLearn course provides staff with the foundational Motivational Interviewing (MI) skills needed to help any prisoner make positive changes. Staff learn how to engage quickly with clients and elicit change talk, and in doing so ultimately help prisoners to help themselves. In addition, staff learn how to effectively manage sustain talk as well as various
forms of resistance, and, in doing so, save time and energy by focussing on the interactions that really matter.

By utilising over an hour of media, various ‘Oceania specific’ examples and activities, and regular challenges and quizzes, staff are kept interested and engaged and are not only encouraged to reflect on their progress, but are also provided with opportunities to apply their new skills in real settings. In addition, an optional innovative email follow up system supports on-going learning transfer for three months after the completion of the course.
