Motivational Interviewing :Enabling Therapeutic Change

6.25 CE Hours Available

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a counseling method for strengthening a person’s own motivation and commitment to change by creating an accepting and collaborative relationship and paying special attention to the language of change. With MI, ambivalence about change can be resolved and plans for change put into practice.
With more than 1,000 published studies and application in a wide variety of mental health, substance use, and health behavior settings, MI is an approach whose brevity, adaptability, and clinical wisdom have made it especially appealing to practitioners.
Dr. Zuckoff describes, illustrates, and demonstrates how MI can be used to help clients change.
