October 2013 Webinar on Motivational Interviewing
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a collaborative, person-centered approach to facilitate behavioral and lifestyle change. In a 90-minute Webinar, Dr. Judith Bayog, licensed psychologist and clinic director of the Alcohol & Drug Treatment Program Outpatient Clinic at the Brockton Division of the VA Boston Healthcare System, provided an overview of MI designed for primary care clinicians and behavioral health providers. Dr. Bayog shared the basic principles and key concepts of MI that help to establish rapport, engage and retain clients in treatment, and guide them toward change. In addition, Dr. Bayog reviewed applications of MI across cultures and settings.

Clinical content in the library is evidence-based, written by subject matter experts, and reviewed on an annual basis. Just a few of the library topics include:

  • Healthy weight (BMI) maintenance

  • Smoking and tobacco use cessation

  • Encouraging physical activity

  • Healthy eating

  • Managing stress

  • Avoiding at-risk drinking

  • Identifying psychiatric symptoms through self-assessment

  • Recovery and resiliency

  • Treatment monitoring

In addition to regular content, each month highlights a different health topic. Examples include sleep, emotional and physical abuse, and living with disabilities.

Through the Health and Wellness Library, Members will be able to access comprehensive, integrated information related to physical and behavioral health, wellness, and more. The site includes interactive quizzes, trainings, articles, videos, web links, and other tools.
