This webinar will review the basic concepts and skills of Motivational Interviewing (MI) and will employ MI skills and tools, to illustrate the practical applicability of these tools in clinical practice for their addiction and other patient populations. An MI approach positions clinicians and patients as mutually collaborative experts, and participants adhering to MI can improve the efficiency of the limited clinical time we have with patients. Since its introduction in the early 1980’s to address behaviors related to addiction, the effectiveness of MI has been demonstrated across a wide variety of disciplines and issues. Despite this evidence, MI adherent practice has relatively limited penetrance in mainstream clinical practice. There is a tremendous potential benefit of employing MI to improve care, particularly in addressing common problems such as medication non-adherence and changing other problematic behaviors such as substance use. The session will introduce participants to the fundamentals of motivational interviewing emphasizing core ideas and the spirit of MI. While this workshop is useful to all, it is designed for those who have had limited exposure to motivational interviewing.
- Explain the meaning of the spirit of MI and the general approach to patients.
- Identify and utilize the four metaprocesses to structure an MI session.
- Utilize reflections, change talk, and core skills in MI.
