Using Motivational Interviewing to Address College Client Alcohol Abuse
Scholl, Mark B.; Schmitt, Dorothy M.
Journal of College Counseling, v12 n1 p57 Spr 2009
Motivational Interviewing (MI; W. R. Miller & S. Rollnick, 2002) is presented as a potentially effective counseling strategy for assisting traditionally aged college students in reducing their problematic, heavy alcohol use. MI's congruence with two developmental theories--Self-Determination Theory (R. M. Ryan & E. L. Deci, 2000) and SevenVector Model (A.W. Chickering & L. Reisser, 1993)--is explored. In addition to presenting a case illustration, recommendations, advantages, and limitations are discussed.
