SW 702LEC Motivational Interviewing for Client Behavior Change


This course is an introduction to the principles, strategies, and the spirit of the Motivational Interviewing (MI) approach to help clients build commitment and reach a decision to change problematic behaviors. The theoretical basis of MI lies in the construct of "ambivalence" and the conflict between indulgence and restraint that is to prevalent when clients consider behavior change. The difficult in changing problematic behaviors is an occurrence that extends well beyond "addictive behaviors". The immobilizing effects of ambivalence can be seen in many practice spheres. In addition, the course will discuss MI's application to practice with "mandated" and "resistant" clients.
