Motivational Interviewing: Promoting Behavioral Change Among Individuals With Psychiatric Disabilities

 

 

OVERVIEW: Motivational interviewing is a therapeutic communication technique used to help consumers internalize their motivation to change. This technique was originally developed to help individuals with substance use disorders. Recent evidence suggests this tool can be used with diverse populations to increase motivation towards behavioral change. A foundational tenant of motivational interviewing is that all clients are the experts on themselves and have the ability within themselves to change. Therefore, the role of recreational therapists is to elicit internal motivation for change, help identify personal and sustainable resources and strategies that promote lasting change. In this session, we will provide an overview of the purpose and benefits of motivational interviewing, as well as specific strategies recreational therapists can use to help individuals with psychiatric disabilities identify personally meaningful recreation goals and work towards lifelong engagement within the community.

Leisure Education: Addressing Avolition In Adults with Psychiatric Disorders

 

OVERVIEW: Self-direction is a key skill for adults to achieve experiences that are meaningful and satisfying and that translate into quality of life (QOL) and quality of leisure (QOL2). Many skills are needed to transcend from a passive life, an apathetic life, or a "distracted" life to experiences that are volitional, meaningful, and mindful. Recognize the knowledge base and skill set needed to assist others with self-direction, increased motivation, and increased initiative. Learn the terminology and foundational knowledge that justifies "motivation" and "initiative" as firmly within the Recreation Therapist's purview.

Active Transportation for Individuals With Mental Health Conditions

 


OVERVIEW: Active transportation can be defined as human-powered transportation. This might include walking, using a wheelchair, cycling or skateboarding. Even using public transportation is considered active transportation due to the increased physical activity in comparison to using one’s own vehicle. Research shows that active transportation is associated with holistic wellness benefits. It can also allow for greater commuting independence for those with limited financial resources. These are of direct concern among the population of people with psychiatric disabilities. Therefore, the role of the Recreation Therapist may include transportation education and encouraging participation in commuting preferences. This lies within our scope of practice because many forms of active transportation can be, in themselves, leisure experiences associated with health benefits. In this session, we will discuss the benefits of active transportation. We will also facilitate a conversation about the potential barriers that consumers may experience and identify strategies that can be used to support consumers’ goals to increase active transportation.
