It is common for students to experience resistance or ambivalence when a supervisor or faculty advisor requests they change their behaviors or perspectives to be a more effective counselor. Motivational interviewing (MI) is used to cultivate motivation for positive change within the context of a helping relationship, and is applied to counselor supervision. Implementing this approach can help improve the effectiveness of supervision and remediation, including students achieving desired outcomes, even if students are initially ambivalent or appear disengaged. In this roundtable, we will describe MI applied to clinical supervision and student remediation. Attendees will be encouraged to apply the material presented in interactive activities, and case examples will illustrate specific applications of MI in supervision and remediation.
