An Intro to Motivational Interviewing
• Instructor: Michelle Drapkin, PhD
• Instructional Level: Introductory
• 1 CE credit for psychologists
We have at our disposal an array of evidence-based practices (EBPs) for a variety of disorders (e.g., depression, PTSD, OCD, etc.). However, there is a significant proportion of clients who have difficulties engaging in those EBPs. A motivational interviewing approach (MI) may help resolve ambivalence related to EBP engagement. MI is defined as “a collaborative conversation style for strengthening a person’s own motivation and commitment to change” (Miller & Rollnick, 2012). Integrating and overlaying this MI style onto an EBP can help overcome engagement challenges (e.g., homework completion) and continue to move individuals in the direction of change. Learn More
