Working with offenders is challenging because they frequently present with a lack of motivation to participate in treatment or make changes in their lifestyle. Motivational Interviewing reduces this resistance and increases engagement and retention in services. Cognitive Behavioral Interventions are best practice in reducing recidivism for offenders. Combining these two approaches will maximize our impact. This session will present strategies for integrating these two models into an approach for working with offenders. The newly published book, Motivational Interviewing and CBT: Combining Strategies for Maximum Effectiveness by Sylvie Naar and Steven Safren will serve as a primary resource for the content of the training. The session will include a review of the theoretical underpinnings of the models and practical applications of the combined approach.
THIS TRAINING MOVES BEYOND THE BASICS AND IS APPROPRIATE FOR COMMUNITY CORRECTIONS PROFESSIONALS AND BEHAVIORAL HEALTH PROVIDERS WHO ARE ALREADY USING MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING IN THEIR WORK.
