Training videos on Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing: Professional Training Series, 1998. William R. Miller & Stephen Rollnick. Directed by Theresa B. Moyers.

“This series of six videotapes or two DVDs, produced at the University of New Mexico, is intended to be used as a resource in professional training, offering six hours of clear explanation and practical modeling of component skills. Because it is helpful to see how a method is practiced in various contexts, the tapes include clinical demonstrations of the skills of motivational interviewing, showing ten different therapists working with twelve clients who bring a variety of problems. Drs. Miller and Rollnick are deeply grateful to Terri Moyers, who volunteered many weeks of her time for the planning, directing, editing, and completion of these tapes.”
