The session will present the origins of Motivational Interviewing; describe its fundamental concepts, such as spirit, processes, and core skills; demonstrate the use of Motivational Interviewing; offer practical ways to integrate MI with other psychosocial and pharmacological approaches; and discuss incorporating Motivational Interviewing as communication style in consultative, administrative, supervisory and educational settings.  Participants will gain a practical foundation of Motivational Interviewing that can be readily applied and further enhanced with practice.
