Motivational Interviewing as a Supervision Strategy in Probation: A
Randomized Effectiveness Trial
| Cataloged on:
Aug. 24, 2011
ANNOTATION: “This study was designed to evaluate the effect of a modest MI [motivational interviewing] training program on probation officer skill, on client outcome, and the overall relationship between officer skill and client outcome” (p. 318). This training program increased some MI skills that were maintained over six months, had no effect on some key probationer outcomes, and had little relationship between MI practice and offender outcome.
