ABSTRACT The Evaluating Methods for Motivational Enhancement Education trial evaluated methods for learning motivational interviewing (MI). Licensed substance abuse professionals (N = 140) were randomized to 5 training conditions: (a) clinical workshop only; (b) workshop plus practice feedback; (c) workshop plus individual coaching sessions; (d) workshop, feedback, and coaching; or (e) a waiting list control group of self-guided training. Audiotaped practice samples were analyzed at baseline, posttraining, and 4, 8, and 12 months later. Relative to controls, the 4 trained groups showed larger gains in proficiency. Coaching and/or feedback also increased posttraining proficiency. After delayed training, the waiting list group showed modest gains in proficiency. Posttraining proficiency was generally well maintained throughout follow-up. Clinician self-reports of MI skillfulness were unrelated to proficiency levels in observed practice.

The aim of this quasi-experimental study is to identify the effects of counseling strategy training Adaptation Motivational Interviewing on counselor trainees. Instruments used were Counseling Response Questionnaire, Confidence and Knowledge Scale and Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity. Around 112 counselor trainees were involved in this study and they were divided into treatment and control groups. Overall results showed that there were significantdifferences in effects of training (empathy response, confidence and Motivational Interviewing skills) between the treatment group and the control group. However, this training strategy failed to improve the skills of the subject to the level of proficiency, except for the complex-reflection response. This study contributes towards the development of Motivational Interviewing theory in cross-cultural contexts and promotes a model of AMI strategy training in Malaysia.

    ABSTRACT: The high prevalence of trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in individuals with substance use disorders (SUDs) presents a number of treatment challenges for community treatment providers and programs in the USA. Although several evidence-based, integrated therapies for the treatment of comorbid PTSD/SUD have been developed, rates of utilisation of such practices remain low in community treatment programs. The goal of this article was to review the extant literature on common barriers that prevent adoption and implementation of integrated treatments for PTSD/SUD among substance abuse community treatment programs. Organisational, provider-level and patient-level factors that drive practice decisions were discussed, including organisational philosophy of care policies, funding and resources, as well as provider and patient knowledge and attitudes related to implementation of new integrated treatments for comorbid PTSD and SUD. Understanding and addressing these community treatment challenges may facilitate use of evidence-based integrated treatments for comorbid PTSD and SUD. [Killeen TK, Back SE, Brady KT.
