Session 9: Motivational Interviewing: Toward More Effective Counseling and Psychotherapy
This workshop will provide an up-to-date introduction to motivational interviewing via a combination of presentation, demonstration, and experiential practice. Particular focus will be on the linguistic and strategic features that are unique to MI. Though MI is itself an evidence-based intervention, it more generally provides a person-centered approach to clinical practice by specifying and integrating common therapeutic factors that influence treatment outcome.

(3) Demonstrate at least three ways to evoke and strengthen change talk
(4) Identify common therapeutic factors that influence treatment outcomes
