EP13 Invited Address 17 – Motivational Interviewing and The Language of Change – William Miller, PhD
Original Program Date :
Motivational interviewing facilitates a natural process of “talking oneself into change.” Dr. Miller will provide an overview of the clinical method of motivational interviewing and its underlying psycholinguistic processes, based on recent research linking therapist and client in-session speech to behavioral outcomes. These dynamics appear to predict successful outcomes across a variety of psychotherapies.
