Module 4 Outline:

  • The Practice of MI - Four Processes

This module starts with the illustration of the four processes, and more, using the unique opportunity provided by a willing workshop participant. She agrees to a series of unrehearsed simulations that allow me to describe a case, and proceed, breaking for discussion whenever it felt useful. Its not perfect, or perfectly realistic, but it does come to life nonetheless. My attitude was that its only by making mistakes that I will learn!

  • Direction in Motivational Interviewing

MI is a very client-centered activity, but it's not the same as client or patient-centered practice, it's more than that. If you like, it's client-centered counseling with a purpose. This next interview with Bill Miller and myself makes this point well.

  • Importance & Confidence

One day I worked with a colleague in experimental interviews with clients. What emerged was this practical interview strategy for exploring someone’s motivation to change. Listen to this exchange about the potential.

  • Developing Discrepancy

There’s a tricky challenge often encountered in mental health, where someone seems very unmotivated. Listen to this discussion about developing discrepancy.

"I'm really looking forward to practicing the material. The use of metaphors was particularly engaging. Especially the reference to the compassion cocoon. Putting on the MI mind or spectacles will help me create a mindset for MI implementation."
