Research Projects

The focus of our research  is  linked to the philosophy of the MI Research Centre. We aim to create research collaborations in order to develop the profession by:

  • increasing access to therapy and creating social impact,  
  • exploring new approaches and therapeutic methods, and
  • developing psychotherapy training and theory.
