EP13 Invited Address 17 – Motivational Interviewing and The Language of Change – William Miller, PhD



Moderator: Michael Munion, MA

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.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Explain the role of client change talk in helping people change.
  2. Explain how following a therapist manual can affect the efficacy of motivational interviewing.
  3. Explain how a “decisional balance” procedure can undermine motivation for change.
