Enhancing Motivation for Change in Substance Use Disorder Treatment (New Course)
Enhancing Motivation for Change in Substance Use Disorder Treatment course description, Objectives and Outline:
Motivation for change is a key component in addressing substance misuse. This Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) reflects a fundamental rethinking of the concept of motivation as a dynamic process, not a static client trait. Motivation relates to the probability that a person will enter into, continue, and adhere to a specific change strategy.
The motivation-enhancing approaches and strategies this TIP describes can increase participation and retention in SUD treatment and positive treatment outcomes, including:
• Reductions in alcohol and drug use.
• Higher abstinence rates.
• Successful referrals to treatment.
This TIP shows how SUD treatment counselors can influence positive behavior change by developing a therapeutic relationship that respects and builds on the client’s autonomy. Through motivational enhancement, counselors become partners in the client’s change process. The TIP also describes different motivational interventions counselors can apply.
- Discuss at least one motivation-enhancing approach and/or strategy that can increase participation and retention in treatment and positive treatment outcomes
- Describe at least two new perspectives on addiction treatment
- Describe at least two clinical advantages to risk reduction
- Explain the four processes in MI
- Describe at least two benefits of MI
- Differentiate between MI stages and describe the processes
- Explain at lest one key element in relapse prevention counseling
