Motivational Interviewing is useful for a wide range of social issues. Its primary focus is on igniting motivation to change, and so it is helpful when clients are stuck in problems and not advancing in change. As such it is helpful in all change and recovery-based services such as mental health, substance misuse, offending, social work, domestic violence, supported housing, young people’s services, family work and more besides.

Audit has become an increasing feature of how casework and services are managed in local authorities. As well as serving as an important quality assurance mechanism for individual children and families, they can also be an invaluable source of learning, providing insight into the wider practice system. All too often, however, audit has been criticised as being reductionist and ‘tick box’ in its nature. This webinar will explore the potential of audit to be used in more constructive and helpful ways.
