Motivational Interviewing in Behavioral Health Interventions with Diverse Populations


Presented by:

Scott Walters, PhD


Motivational Interviewing is evidenced-based conversational strategy for promoting behavior change.  With more than 500 studies supporting its efficacy in a variety of settings, MI has become an attractive treatment option in healthcare settings where interactions may be brief and multi-focused.  This workshop will introduce MI and teach its use in drawing out a client's motivation and commitment to change. 


1) Recall key components and principles of MI

2) Identify the common and unique elements of MI as a clinical style    

3) Demonstrate basic reflective listening skills.

4) Identify client change talk and how it contributes to MI practice
