Motivational Interviewing (MI) helps patients find their motivation for change and identify what is important to them about their health. The training is designed for practitioners of all disciplines who work with patients that are ambivalent or resistant to change and who are living with or at high risk for chronic diseases.
By the end of the training, participants will be able to:
- Describe the spirit and principles of MI
- Demonstrate how to use OARS (open-ended questions, affirmations, reflective listening, and summaries)
- Use the readiness ruler, stages of change theory, and decisional balance when counseling patients
- Discuss advanced concepts of MI and how to integrate them into patient counseling sessions
