June 2017- October 2018 Jaffar Consultancy has developed and will be giving training in Motivational Interviewing for over 250 staff members of the Dutch Department of Justice.
At the start of 2017 Jaffar Consultancy signed a contract with the Dutch Ministry of Justice to develop a module Motivational Interviewing for all 250 staff members of the Dutch Ministry of Justice who are tasked with maintaining he contacts with asylumseekers who have seen their application turned down and therefore are obliged to leave the Netherlands. During the period 2017-2018 these 250 staff member of the Department of Justice will be trained by Jaffar Consultancy in the application of the techniques of Motivational Interviewing, combined with techniques from Intercultural Communication, since these staff members of the Department of Justice have to work exclusively with former asylum seekers who by definition are not Dutch and not from the EU.
The method that is being developed by Jaffar Consultancy, with input in earlier stages by the Utrecht University of Applied Sciences (Hogeschool Utrecht) is a combination of methodological insights and practical techniques from Motivational Interviewing, facilitative mediation, solution-focused training, probational work, Prochaska’s and DeClemente’s Transtheoretical Model and the Globe Research on intercultural communication.
