Why motivation, you might ask? Here are a few essential components to consider. Motivation is key to change; motivation can be changed. Motivation is evidence-based and relationship-focused. Motivation access existing strengths and has an emphasis on self-determination.
The Transtheoretical Model…
The Stages of Change Model focuses on decision making and intentional change. People do not change behaviors quickly and change in behavior occurs continuously through a cyclical process. Different behavioral theories and constructs can be applied to various stages of the model where they may be most effective. The Transtheoretical Model is based on more than two decades of research; individuals move through a series of stages in the adoption of healthy behaviors or cessation of unhealthy ones. (Prochaska & Velicer, 1997). This presentation then reviews the Stages of Change Model.
Assessing Readiness for Change Cont'd...
The clients need motivational support appropriate to their stage of change. Inappropriate interventions could cause additional treatment resistance. The clinician must accept the client's current position and avoid "getting too far ahead" of the client. Apply the correct counseling strategy for each stage of readiness. A great tool to assess the readiness to change is the university of Rhode Island Change Assessment Scale (URICA). This is used at the start of treatment to measure the state of change: pre-contemplation, contemplation, action, and maintenance. Clinicians may use the URICA to evaluate an individual's level of motivation for change and use this information to help guide treatment approaches. Here is a link for URICA screenings. https://habitslab.umbc.edu/urica/
Here are some of the clinical applications.
• Assess stage of change over the course of treatment
• Identify barriers to recovery and engagement
• Develop and reinforce motivation for change
• Assist client in working toward self-identified goals
• Re-evaluate goals and change plan as needed
• Assist client with an accurate understanding of the problems and risks associated with their substance use
What is Motivational Interviewing? Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a collaborative, person-centered form of guiding to elicit and strengthen motivation for change. It is a way of working with people to assist them in accessing their intrinsic motivation to change behaviors that contradict their essential values and interfere with achieving their life goals. MI is both a philosophy and a set of strategic techniques. Motivational Interviewing aims to produce internally motivated change, mobilize the client's own change resources and move from developing motivation to strengthening motivation for change.
The goals of Motivational Interviewing are to resolve ambivalence, avoid strengthening resistance, elicit self-motivational statements, enhance motivation and commitment to change, and assist the client in progressing through the stages of change.
