Webinar: Motivational Interviewing: A model for behavioral change
Speaker: Antonia Montoya, MS, CHES
Location: Pendergraft Library 325
Time: 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Learn the basics of Motivational Interviewing (MI), an evidence-based method of helping people change their behavior. MI is a collaborative process between staff and student that enhances their readiness for change by exploring and resolving ambivalence. MI was once a method used by licensed mental health practitioners for drug and alcohol treatment but has been proven to be an effective approach for many behaviors such as smoking, diet, exercise, medication adherence, anger management, eating disorders, and others. With an emphasis on the four principles of MI we will explore autonomy, effective communication, motivation, self-efficacy, and readiness for change. Participants will understand the basics of this respectful student-centered approach and will be able to begin practicing their new skills right away.


Know the four principles of Motivational Interviewing.
Understand the importance of autonomy, self-motivation, and self-efficacy for behavior change.
Explore the communication skills effective for MI.
Receive a list of questions to ask students.
