SAVE the DATE - TAPM Annual Seminar - April 5, 2019

07 Jan 2019 3:17 PM | Anonymous

Please make plans to join us on April 5, 2019 at Lipscomb University. Dr. Jon S. Ebert will be our keynote speaker.

He will be discussing "AN INTRODUCTION TO MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING". Professor Ebert is a licensed clinical psychologist with extensive clinical and consultation expertise in the assessment and delivery of services to children and families who have experienced traumatic stress and mental health challenges.

Motivational Interviewing is based on four major principles, as follows: 

1. Empathy 

2. Developing Discrepancy 

3. Rolling with Resistance 

4. Supporting Self-efficacy 

With these four principles in mind, a motivational interviewer will attempt to elicit change talk by creating a neutral, safe environment where the client can explore their ambivalence regarding change. This is done in an empathetic yet directive manner - the interviewer listens non-judgmentally while directing the client toward a desired change by asking neutral, exploratory questions that develop a discrepancy between the client's values and current behavior. As the discrepancy widens, the client becomes motivated to change his behavior to reach the values he espouses.
