Session 5, Friday, 7/29: Macro Motivational Interviewing: Integrating Individual Techniques for Socially Produced Trauma
Motivational Interviewing is typically an intervention used to help individuals engage in change, but what if it is the system that needs to change and not the individual? Many individuals are caught up in systems that create and exacerbate their individual trauma. Macro MI is an application of MI that empowers individuals to engage in activism, advocacy, and consciousness raising to address larger systemic issues that impact their lives and influence their wellness.
Viewers of this video can benefit from the following learning objectives:
- Define “socially produced trauma”
- List the components of the SHARP model that address the macro features clinicians need to address in order to support systems change
- Identify the MI skills to use that help promote the SHARP model in session
