Motivational Interviewing - Practical Applications for Psychotherapy
This year’s Spring Convention will devote an entire day to understanding the practice of Motivational Interviewing (MI). For those of you who may be unfamiliar with this therapeutic approach, MI is a client-centered therapeutic modality used for eliciting behavior change through helping to explore and resolve ambivalence about change. It has been used in a variety of clinical settings, including working with people who have substance disorders.
