Motivational interviewing for offenders
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a structured counseling approach designed to elicit motivation for change. Innovative component interventions involve the EMDR-based "Future Movies" intervention - to help the offender identify and invest in personal goals - and Functional Behavioral Analysis - to help the offender understand the relationship and the trauma history to the problem behaviors. Workshop participants will learn how to use Future Movies and Functional Behavioral Analysis within the MI approach, to mobilize offenders to engage in treatment activities, including EMDR, to interrupt and defuse the offense cycle. This approach is applicable to adolescents and adults with a variety of problem behaviors.
