Rosengren fuzzy thinking or fuzzy logic

  1. 1. Splitting hairs or parsing concepts, fuzzy thinking or fuzzy categories: where does MI end and client-centered therapy begin? David B. Rosengren, Ph.D. Director, Research & Evaluation Services Prevention Research institute ICMI – 2 Stockholm, SE June 7, 2010
  2. 2. How did we get here? <ul><li>MI grew from empirical observations and.. </li></ul><ul><li>Self observations by W.R. Miller </li></ul><ul><li>A set of concepts & precepts followed </li></ul><ul><li>Data, revision, data, revision & a beginning theory </li></ul><ul><li>MI extended beyond addictive behaviors </li></ul><ul><li>Along the way, interest exploded </li></ul>
  3. 3. Where do the tent pegs go?
  4. 4. Definitions <ul><li>Current </li></ul><ul><ul><li>MI is a client-centered, directive method for enhancing intrinsic motivation to change by exploring and resolving ambivalence. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Evolving </li></ul><ul><ul><li>MI is a person-centered, guiding method of communication to elicit and strengthen motivation for change. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Person-centered therapy/approach </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Three conditions: genuineness, acceptance & unconditional positive regard </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Assists the person in moving towards self-actualization </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. The Trouble With Definitions <ul><li>A creationist can embarrass an evolutionist by asking for a definition of species. </li></ul><ul><li>Walter Lang </li></ul><ul><li>As a rule we disbelieve all the facts and theories for which we have no use. </li></ul><ul><li>Gustave Flaubert </li></ul>
  6. 6. And then there was equipoise…
  7. 7. Back to the Trouble with Definitions <ul><li>Definition of Equipoise </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Equality of distribution in weight, relationship or emotional forces </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Synonyms </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Calmness, balance, equilibrium, poise, composure, equanimity, etc... </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Dr. Dunn’s conclusions – it refers to two states </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Counselor demeanor/inner state </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Counselor behavior </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Dr. Miller’s response </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“… never…thought of equipoise in relation to general demeanor.” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“… exists in relationship to a specific behavior.” </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. So, equipoise… about what?
  9. 9. Fuzzy thinking or Fuzzy categories?
  10. 10. Boolean Logic vs. Fuzzy Logic… <ul><li>Or why I didn’t become a computer scientist… </li></ul><ul><li>Boolean Logic </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Typically is a binary logic system </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It takes into account two possible states: 0 and 1. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Fuzzy Logic </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fuzzy logic is a form of multi-valued logic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Derived from fuzzy set theory </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Deals with approximate rather than precise reasoning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Values between 0 and 1 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Huh? Examples </li></ul>
  11. 11. What in the world does this have to do with MI? <ul><li>It seemed like a good idea at the time </li></ul><ul><li>Maybe we’ve been using the wrong logic </li></ul><ul><li>Do we need a new metaphor? </li></ul><ul><li>Four concepts: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Engaging </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Guiding </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evoking </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Planning </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Remind me… why does this matter? <ul><li>Clinicians? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It probably doesn’t </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Research on EBPs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We need to define what it is </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>When it is done well </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Implementation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Done with fidelity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Systems to implement, coach and assess </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It will help Allan sleep at night </li></ul>
