Questions related to Motivational Interviewing
Huge and vague inquiry from a non-professional active in mental health social work: I have read that there is not much evidence for the value of "I-messages." This leads me to ask about a lot of things I use:
-mindfulness in trauma reactions-
-challenging questions to people [in therapy, although I am not a therapist]
-Broken-record technique to avoid arguments
-Application of motivational interviewing to misinformation, e.g. "I don't want to have therapy because only crazy people need therapy."
-very simple screening questions
I would like to carry out a research based on Motivational interview skill application by trained staffs and if the method used was effective or no, in changing the lifestyle behaviour of the population. but i do not know how to go about it as there are nurses and doctors who are trained but due to challenges if they are applying their knowledge to practice. i want to do this research because despite many interventions the NCD rate for Fiji continues to increase, therefore I feel there is a need to change peoples mindset towards their lifestyle behaviour.
I am looking for an evidence-based guideline for motivational interviewing in the context of behavioral mental health. I am planning on conducting research for this topic as I finish my doctorate program. I am particularly looking for guidelines that have to do with anxiety and depression. Can anyone recommend sources to me?
Does anyone know a study on motivational interviewing applied to families in the field of socio-educational intervention?

With growing use and acceptance of MI in the health care community, I still hear a lot of "yeah, but's" related to an ablity to use this skill in health care. I would like to understand better what the issues are. Thanks!
We used structural equation modelling with latent variables using items indicators for our analyses. Given the sample size and the complexity of the model, the use of structural equation modeling using parcels/packets as indicators might be a good alternative. Although I have read some disadvantages about parceling, I would like to give it a try. However, I cannot find a tutorial or something similar that explains step by step how to use parceling in mplus. Does anyone have a suggestions?
Thank you very much and kind regards,

I have thought of 8 session Relapse Prevention module and Motivational Interviewing module already.
In 2015 we will have coordinated 25 years of monitoring nocturnal owl populations, and have data on volunteer participation frequency. I would like to send a questionnaire to assess or analyze motivation of volunteers to seek correlated variables and reasons why some people participated only once, while others did so enthusiastically year after year.
I am wondering what is known about possible characteristics (e.g. demographics) of clients/ patients that influence the receptivity of persons to MI counseling.
Nowadays, more and more attention is paid to the importance of assessing MI therapist/ counselor fidelity. Various instruments have been developed to assess MI fidelity, including the MITI, MISC and BECCI. In addition, Madson et al., have developed the CEMI questionnaire in order to assess the client experiences of MI.
Interestingly, I could hardly find any information about the therapist/counselor experiences with their own MI consultations. In other words, is a trained MI therapist/counselor able to correctly classify a conversation as a 'good MI conversation' or a 'bad conversation'? In addition, I could not find a self-assessment instrument to measure the experiences of the therapist/counselor with his/her own level op MI skills.
Therefore, I am wondering if somebody knows more about the possibility of trained MI therapists/counselors to assess their own MI skills correctly. And whether any research has been done on the relationship between such subjective experiences and the (more) objectively measured MI fidelity.
We are looking at predicting adherence to medical and behavioral health care recommendations among individuals with metabolic syndrome. I'm curious if anyone might be able to provide personal insight into specific indicators (behavioral or otherwise) that have been effective/reliable in quantifying the construct of treatment adherence?
