Abstract

We presented to high school students interested in careers in health about alcohol use and motivational interviewing. We demonstrated effective motivational interviewing skills including asking open ended questions, using non-judgmental language and eliciting change talk from patients. Finally we facilitated breakout sessions which allowed students to practice identifying at risk behaviors and to practice motivational interviewing.
