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."
Abstract: 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.
