Abstract

This report applies competency-based supervision using a psychotherapy-based approach for training and supervision in motivational interviewing (MI). Procedures and measures are presented for assessing training outcomes and quality of ongoing supervision processes (N = 36). Simple pre-post test design is utilized followed by a series of t-tests and correlations to illustrate applicability of the psychotherapybased approach to training and supervision. Although some analyses were underpowered, results support this psychotherapy-based approach to training and supervision. Supervision processes and outcomes are an understudied area in general, and in particular the literature has yet to articulate a competency-based approach to training and supervising in MI. Procedures presented here can be used to assess and maintain training and supervision quality.
