Motivational interviewing is an approach to counseling in which the psychologist and patient work collaboratively to help that patient make positive behavioral changes that support better overall health.
Scott Glassman, PsyD ’13, clinical assistant professor, psychology, and associate director of the master’s program in Mental Health Counseling, studies how motivational interviewing can be of particular interest in the primary care setting. In the latest Faculty Focus video, he discusses the four processes of motivational interviewing and how it can be effective in helping patients manage their own health and wellness.
