The Pacific Southwest MHTTC is pleased to provide the recording of Session 3 in the five-part series on Motivational Interviewing which offers skills for our school and mental health workforce.

Motivational interviewing (MI) provides us with a way to have conversations about change. In this series, participants will learn the basics of how to apply MI to both typical and challenging clinical situations. 

Session 3, Wednesday, 7/27: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) & Motivational Interviewing


Motivational Interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy work well together; MI helps providers engage individuals in change and CBT assists in the active thought and behavior change process.


Viewers of this recording can benefit from the following learning objectives: 


  1. Describe the stages of change model and determine when MI should be used vs. when CBT is the best intervention
  2. Identify what components of MI contain elements of CBT intervention and when such interventions are best applied in session
  3. List five to seven CBT and BT interventions that help promote change during the action stage of treatment
