Emily Kline, PhD, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Clinical Psychologist, Boston University School of Medicine
Seeing loved ones struggle with their mental health can be heart breaking, especially if they are reluctant to take medication or accept other kinds of help. A communication strategy called motivational interviewing is widely used by health professionals to enhance people’s motivation to make healthy changes. Dr. Emily Kline has developed a motivational interviewing-inspired curriculum for family members of individuals with mental illness. In this workshop, Dr. Kline will teach these skills to attendees and share her research findings on motivational interviewing for loved ones.
