Wouldn’t we all like our clients to own more personal interest, energy and responsibility for their own change work? Motivational Interviewing, developed by William Miller, Ph.D. and Stephen Rollnick, Ph.D. in the 1980s is an Evidence-Based Practice that holds a key to unlocking our clients’ own unique intrinsic motivations for change by examining and resolving their ambivalence.We will examine some basic concepts of MI, practice using a few MI skills that participants may fond immediately useful, and learn the steps in mastery of this valuable tool for our counseling toolboxes,Learning objectives:
Understand the definition, spirit, and basic principles of Motivational Interviewing.
Practice using some of the opening strategies of OARS (open-ended questions, affirmations, reflections and summarizations) to elicit Change Talk, which leads to change.
Experience and practice a Motivational Interviewing approach to resolving discord with clients.
