Josué Guadarrama MA Presentation at 2016 Science of HOPE
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a directive, client-centered counseling and/or communication style for eliciting behavior change by helping individuals to explore and resolve ambivalence, while minimizing resistance and maximizing intrinsic motivation. Compared with nondirective counseling, MI is more focused and goal-directed. Based on the physics of behavior change, participants will learn assessment and communication skills that foster sustained behavior change by tapping into intrinsic motivation. Aside from a didactic approach, there will be video examples and skill practice. Audience participation is highly encouraged.
