Special Topics in Motivational Interviewing: Substance Use Disorders, Ambivalent Parents & Ambivalent Partners
Time & Location
About the Event
5 Core CE Hours: This workshop is designed for individuals who have completed introductory Motivational Interviewing (MI) training and who have practiced MI in applied settings. Dr. Bethea-Walsh will discuss use of MI to increase motivation to change for different clinical populations: individuals engaging in prescription opioid analgesic misuse and individuals diagnosed with a Substance Use Disorder; ambivalent parents of children receiving treatment; and ambivalent partners in couples therapy. This workshop will review how the “Spirit” and method of MI can be used to strategically influence a client’s decision to change in ways that are consistent with their values/goals, while respecting autonomy. Participants will be guided through small group practice to facilitate a progression from intermediate- to advanced-level of clinical skill development. This workshop will also include video demonstration and live demonstration of MI methods.
