In Assessing Alcohol Problems Using Motivational Interviewing, Dr.
Linda Sobell demonstrates cognitive-behavioral motivational
interviewing techniques for assessing a patient's alcohol use, and
then she and Dr. Mark Sobell discuss this useful approach for
working with individuals with substance use disorders. Motivational
interviewing is a client-centered, directive method for eliciting
intrinsic motivation to change by exploring and resolving a
person's ambivalence to change using open-ended questions,
reflective listening, and decisional balancing. This nonjudgmental,
nonconfrontational interviewing style is designed to minimize a
patient's resistance. The goal is to construct an interaction with
patients so they feel comfortable discussing their risky or problem
behavior. In this session, Dr. Linda Sobell works with a young man
with a history of problem drinking whose recent break-up with his
girlfriend triggered increased risky alcohol use. Dr. Sobell
assesses his readiness for change and then interviews him about
triggers, behaviors, and cognitions associated with his drinking,
emphasizing throughout that the patient has the choice to change,
thereby empowering the patient.
