Motivational Interviewing and Health Behavior Change

Feb 22, 2013 8:45 am -
Feb 22, 2013 4:30 pm

Event Description

Master Series in Clinical Practice

Jointly sponsored by The Continuing Education Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a Major Teaching Hospital of Harvard Medical School; Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute; and the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology.

The Master Series affords the chance to spend a complete day with leaders in our field to consider the unique perspective each speaker brings to the challenging dilemmas in both theory and practice. We hope that you will consider joining us for the entire series at a reduced tuition or choose the programs most relevant to your own practice.

Gary Rose, PhD, instructor

Motivational interviewing is an evidence-based approach to behavior change counseling.  Now in its 3rd decade, MI has significantly altered the manner in which behavior change is discussed within the fields of addictive disorders, acute and chronic disease management, criminal justice, social services and the management of severe and enduring psychiatric disorders. During this workshop, both the relational and technical components of MI, using both didactic and experiential methods will be addressed. The relational component refers to the interpersonal foundation of collaboration, power-sharing, and the appreciation of ambivalence which appears necessary, if insufficient, for effective behavior change. The technical component, the preferential evocation and reinforcement of change talk, is a unique contribution of MI and, when integrated with the MI-spirited relationship, facilitates the initiation and persistence of change.  Practitioners will learn how to integrate the principles and techniques of MI into their everyday practices.

Upon completion of the program, the student will be able to:

    ·         Identify the 3 key elements of the relational component of MI and describe one clinical strategy each for implementation of the 3 relational elements
    ·         Discuss the manner in which the decisional matrix can be used to gain an understanding of client ambivalence, and apply decisional matrix-informed counseling techniques to health change counseling
    ·         Identify two strategies for eliciting and reinforcing client change talk
