Interventions often fail because the client is not yet truly motivated for change. Motivational interviewing elicits intrinsic motivation and is highly effective in conjunction with Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). Participants will recognize language demonstrating readiness for change and learn how to integrate SFBT interventions to bring about lasting change.
This workshop will present a model for using Solution Focused Brief Therapy in group and individual supervision. The presenters will demonstrate how to develop and use a Solution Focused Brief Therapy case presentation outline as an anchor to teach Solution Focused Brief Therapy and help supervisees use the model in their practice. With Ernest Marshall and Lindasue Marshall.
EP13 Dialogue 12 – Acceptance & Commitment Therapy and Motivational Interviewing – Steven Hayes, PhD and William Miller, PhD
Moderator: Robert Bohanske, PhD
Given a topic, describe the differing approaches to psychotherapy, and identify the strengths and weaknesses of each approach.
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.
The clinical method of motivational interviewing (MI) evolved from the person-centered approach of Carl Rogers, maintaining his pioneering commitment to the scientific study of therapeutic processes and outcomes. The original developer of MI will summarize the development of this method, its linkage to Rogers, and research on its therapeutic processes, outcomes, and training.
