    The Psycholinguistics of MI

    The Psycholinguistics of MI

    Glenn and Sebastian were excited about having Paul Amrhein on the podcast given his historical importance to the development of MI. Paul is presently on the faculties of Montclair State University (Professor, Psychology) in New Jersey and Columbia University (Adjunct Associate Professor, Psychiatry) in New York. An experimental psycholinguist by training, he earned his PhD in psychology at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. In 1995, as a faculty colleague at the University of New Mexico, Paul began work with Bill Miller on an exploration of the nature and role of client language evoked during MI as a predictor of substance use outcomes. Based on his dissertation work, Paul devised a process model explaining how the valence (sustain or change) and strength (weak or strong) of client commitment expressions, supported by underlying preparatory language, lead to behavioral outcomes. Since then, he has been investigating how factors of therapist training in MI and client learning ability interact to promote or impede change talk and its relationship to subsequent behavior.

Señor Felipe ,

So inspiring.

I discovered this podcast after reading about Motivational Interviewing and being curious on its potential applications in my field. I started listening with only a light knowledge and this podcast has helped me to progress from those early days, to being able to identify MI as a passion, to something that I now learn about and practice in a variety of different ways every day. This is now my favourite podcast of any topic and I commend the hosts for their curiosity, passion and commitment to helping others to find inspiration in a direction that also in turn helps others.

VeggieRD ,

I Love Their Compassion!

I found this podcast just yesterday and am so glad I did! I have been wanting to further my MI skills to work with my patients in an outpatient dialysis setting. This podcast has been useful in confirming how MI can be used in so many settings and why it is important. Listening to Glenn and Sebastian speak in their non-judgmental, empathetic, compassionate way just warms my heart and has me looking forward to pursuing more training for MI. Thank you for this podcast!

Briony2 ,
