Motivational Interviewing is a evidence based practice that can easily join with other modalities to help individuals struggling with ambivalence toward making progress with their own stages of change. I utilize the third edition of Motivational Interviewing - Helping People Change by William R Miller and Stephen Rollnick as my guide. Motivational Interviewing techniques are designed to engage a patient at their readiness to change stage and help facilitate further growth by addressing ambivalence and fear of change with a clinical set of skills that are non-confrontational. This training will help new and seasoned clinicians to review or develop several techniques for meeting patients “where they are at” and work through ambivalence or resistance towards a state of action on change.

At the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Review the clinical stages of change, tools to assess readiness for change, and interventions that can be used in practice to further improve patient readiness.
  • Discuss the history of motivational interviewing.
  • Recognize the five principles of Motivational Interviewing
  • Examine the four processes of Motivational Interviewing.
