MI Club and MI Club Online has been set up for you. We meet in London in person, (also monthly online). You’ll be supervised by members of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT) and will focus on learning, networking, discussing, practising, and improving your Motivational Interviewing skills in a relaxed, no-pressure atmosphere.

Take part in only what you want and what you feel able to do. There truly is something for everyone.
