Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based treatment protocol often used when treating individuals with substance use disorders. The literature supports MI as an effective strategy for reducing symptoms of substance use disorders. However, while many service providers express agreement with the spirit of MI and align ideologically with MI, MI is a detailed treatment protocol that requires training and skill. This webinar will explore how fidelity to MI was monitored at Prism Health North Texas, an HIV/AIDS service organization in Dallas, Texas. We will detail specific tools, continuous improvement and evaluation processes, and practical strategies that increase fidelity to MI principles among care coordinators.

Learning Objectives
  • Learn practical application of MI techniques when working with persons diagnosed with substance use disorders.
  • Understand the process by which Health, Hope, and Recovery directors used to assess fidelity to MI among frontline service providers.
  • Identify methods used to increase fidelity to MI among frontline service providers.
