Goal: To train health care providers and students in primary care and other clinical settings in the basic motivational interviewing techniques to motivate people having substance use and other health problems to change behaviors in order to improve health.
After completing this activity participants will be able to:
- Use a patient-centered, non-authoritarian, collaborative approach to establish a therapeutic alliance with a patient who needs to make a health behavior change.
- Use communication skills from motivational interviewing to work collaboratively with patients to identify a specific health behavior change goal as the focus during the counseling session.
- Identify a patient’s current readiness to change a health behavior problem and select the appropriate steps and skills of motivational interviewing to use based on that level of readiness.
- Evoke participation by patients in exploring their motivations, ambivalence, or resistance to making a health behavior change.
- Apply motivational interviewing techniques in collaborative planning with patients to address substance use or other health problems.
- Adapt motivational interviewing skills to medical settings.
