As service providers we are broadly aware of what constitutes “best practice” when it comes to treatment delivery. In providing psychotherapeutic services for substance abuse, for instance, most would consider optimal treatment to be a coherent, high-quality psychotherapy with a strong empirical basis like Motivational Interviewing. We do not tend to apply this same rigor, however, to our delivery of training to psychiatric residents, psychology interns, and medical students. Without such practices we severely limit the ability of trainees to provide high quality services. The purpose of this presentation is to delineate empirically informed approaches to training in motivational interviewing focused on the elements of instruction, feedback, practice and modeling as well as fostering an atmosphere of deliberate practice. In addition to describing and presenting research on these elements of optimal training, we will provide subjective accounts of the importance of these elements in training.
