Helping young people make thoughtful choices that reduce harm and promote well-being are important. And we know that information alone does not change behavior. Motivation interviewing is a unique tool that both supports an individual’s autonomy (which is in alignment with student development theory) and increases the likelihood of positive behavior change. Motivational Interviewing is a communication method that helps people resolve ambivalent feelings and insecurities to find the internal motivation people need to change their behavior. It is a practical, empathetic, and short-term process that takes into consideration how difficult it is to make life changes. Initially developed by clinical psychologists William R. Miller and Stephen Rollnick for the treatment of substance abuse, MI is now being applied across health fields and beyond. Participants in this workshop will get an overview of the how MI is used in the college/university health setting, become familiar with the core principles and basic skills, and learn how it is being used on college campuses worldwide.
