Motivational Interviewing for COVID-19 Vaccine Hesitancy
June 9, 2021
There are enough COVID-19 vaccines for everyone in the United States, but some people aren't quite sure yet if they are ready to get one. Dr. Emily Kline taught how to use skills from an evidence-based approach called motivational interviewing to have more successful conversations about COVID-19 vaccines.
Dr. Emily Kline is a psychologist, an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Boston University School of Medicine, and the Director of Psychological Services for the Wellness and Recovery After Psychosis program at Boston Medical Center. She has created a brief curriculum that teaches core motivational interviewing concepts to non-professionals facing difficult conversations with their loved ones.
