Teaching, Monitoring and Evaluating Motivational Interviewing Practice.

IN: Tober G, Raistrick D (eds.). Motivational Dialogue: Preparing Addiction Professionals for Motivational Interviewing Practice. New York: Routledge, 2007, pp.87-113.

To address the demand for professional MI training and to promote real MI proficiency among community practitioners, systematic preparation of hundreds of trainers has occurred through the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT). Additional efforts to disseminate proficient MI practice and to examine its effectiveness in non-university affiliated community treatment programs (CTPs) have also been occurring within the United States through the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) Clinical Trials Network (CTN). This chapter describes the four CTN MI-related studies (CTN-0005, CTN-0004, CTN-0013, and CTN-0021) and details the use of the MINT model in training plan implementation for the studies. How MI was taught, monitored, and evaluated at the CTP sites in the protocols is presented, as well as the use of the Motivational Interviewing Skills Code (MISC), from which clinicians receive feedback from MISC scores that summarize their performance, client session behaviors, and form the basis of coaching tips.
