Tuesday, October 3, 2023 | 11:00 am – 4:30 pm ET
Virtual Live Workshop
This 5-hour virtual-live workshop introduces and expands participants' knowledge and competence utilizing Motivational Interviewing (MI) in addiction treatment settings.
The ASAM Motivational Interviewing Workshop is an engaging and interactive practice-based workshop designed to introduce and expand participants' knowledge and competence utilizing Motivational Interviewing (MI) in addiction treatment settings. MI is a goal-oriented, collaborative counseling style that evokes a person's own motivations for and commitment to change.
Physicians, clinicians, counselors, and all those speaking with patients with addiction often find that one of the main barriers to effective treatment is the patients' perceived lack of motivation to make changes. Without motivation on the patient's part, making or sustaining progress with treatment goals frequently stalls. MI is one technique that treatment clinicians can utilize to help patients make positive changes. Participants of this workshop will be introduced or reintroduced to the key concepts and skills of MI and explore ways to effectively integrate MI into addiction treatment to help promote positive patient outcomes.
The target audience for this introductory level activity include: Physicians, Nurse Practitioners/Nurses, Physician Assistants, Counselors, and Other healthcare providers.
This activity addresses the following ACGME Competencies: Patient Care and Procedural Skills, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Professionalism, and Systems-Based Practice.
Upon completion, learners will be able to:
- Apply the spirit of MI to clinical practice
- Organize clinical communications attending to the four foundational processes of MI (engaging, focusing, evoking, and planning)
- Compare and contrast MI congruent interactions with MI dissonant interactions
- Recognize, respond, and evoke change talk and understand sustain talk
- Apply the basic MI skills of open-ended questions, affirmations, reflective listening, and summaries to selectively reinforce change talk
- Identify further training opportunities for practicing the skills of MI
