This full day workshop will teach attendees motivational interviewing (MI) skills to work more effectively with their patients. Initially developed for resistive substance abusers, MI has been adapted to address other health behaviors and conditions (e.g., dual disorders, smoking, diet, physical activity, HIV screening, sexual behavior, diabetes control, gambling, medical adherence, depression). MI is a collection of strategies and techniques from existing models of psychotherapy and behavior change. A key goal is to assist individuals who are ambivalent or low in readiness to change. MI techniques and strategies will be demonstrated using role-play, videotaped clinical vignettes, and case examples. Participants will learn how to use decisional balancing and readiness rulers to evaluate and promote readiness for change
