We're back on the Motivational Interviewing (MI) horse today with Gill's doctoral student, Qi Te, cohosting. We get into the spirit, processes, and roadblocks (i.e., "Don't's") of MI; listener questions about what makes MI different from regular counseling or common sense; debates about using overstatements in MI; and ideas for teachers who want to use MI--or at least its spirit--in interactions with students and parents.
Qi Te is a first-year PsyD student at UH Clear Lake. He worked as a high school counselor in Beijing and had a professional background in student leadership development. In his spare time, Qite loves to sweat doing crossfit and washing dishes while listening to his favorite podcasts. His goal this year is to finish his thesis and to find out who makes the best BBQ in Houston.
Welcome to the Psychologists Podcast, hosted by Drs. Gill and Julia Strait. We're psychologists, we're married, and we're trying to figure out how to keep two small children alive. Join us as we explore psychology research and practice through a very personal lens. ***https://tinyurl.com/Thepsychologists ***Support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/thepsychologists ***Twitter @psychspodcast
