Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a person-centered, goal-oriented psychotherapeutic intervention designed to enhance motivation for and commitment to a target behavior change (Miller & Rollnick, 2013). Initially developed over 30 years ago to decrease adult alcohol abuse (Miller & Rollnick, 2013), more than 80 randomized control trials have been now published supporting MI’s efficacy across a variety of settings and patient populations (Hall et al., 2015). Extensive empirical examination and dissemination efforts have advanced MI to become the most successfully disseminated evidence-based intervention in substance abuse treatment (Hall et al., 2015). More recently, MI has been applied and deemed effective across a wide variety of adult and pediatric medical and school contexts to change and promote adherence and other health and risk-taking behaviors (Gregory & Channon, 2009; D’Amico et al., 2015; Iachini et al., 2016). Consequently, the effort to evaluate the dissemination of MI in novel settings is timely (Apodoca, 2016). Empirical evaluation of training and dissemination methods in MI can help elucidate effective mechanisms for improving education and supervision models across novel and diverse settings. Further, sharing findings from ongoing and completed MI dissemination efforts may help generate audience members’ new hypotheses, improve existing training and dissemination programs, and promote critical discussion about ways in which the psychology field can promote evidence-based practice among diverse multidisciplinary teams. We present specific studies evaluating the dissemination of MI among pediatric healthcare providers, the dissemination of the Screening Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) among general medical practitioners, the dissemination of culturally adapted MI in Spanish, and the dissemination of school-based motivational interviewing (SBMI).
