Motivational Interviewing with Lloyd Berg, PhD - 02/09/18

 

Six (6) Hour Professional Development Workshop for Texas Psychologists, LPCs, LCSWs, and LMFTs

Workshop Description

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based, person-centered approach used to strengthen a person’s motivation for change toward a specified goal by working to resolve ambivalence and eliciting one’s own arguments for change. Initially developed within the field of substance abuse, MI has been adapted to address other medical and mental health issues, including smoking, risky sexual behavior, depression, anxiety, chronic disease management and medication adherence. In this workshop, the history and theoretical foundations of Motivational Interviewing will be presented, as well as a brief overview of relevant research demonstrating the efficacy of MI. Participants will practice fundamental MI skills and strategies and identify opportunities to integrate these methods with other psychotherapy approaches.

Learning Objectives

  • Define Motivational Interviewing (MI)
  • Identify key MI concepts, including MI Spirit and OARS skills, and their role in facilitating healthy behavior change
  • Identify the relationship between Change Talk and behavior change and strategies to increase within-session change talk
  • Cite relevant research establishing Motivational Interviewing’s efficacy
  • Identify pragmatic strategies to integrate MI with therapeutic approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy and implications for treatment outcomes
