SSW Clinical Assistant Professor Mary Hodorowicz (shown here), Dean Richard Barth, retired Clinical Associate Professor Frederick Strieder, and a colleague have a new paper published in Research on Social Work. The work is titled "Randomized Controlled Trial of Two Methods to Improve Motivational Interviewing Training."
This randomized controlled study examines the efficacy of two innovative methods to teach beginning motivational interviewing (MI) skills: live supervision (LS), a small group experiential learning interaction with standardized client actors and in-the-moment guidance from a supervisor, and a coding learning (CL) method, where students in a classroom setting are introduced to MI skill development via learning to code MI practice behaviors.
