Abstract Effective counseling and communication skills are essential in the disciplines of speech-language pathology and audiology, yet many clinicians receive limited exposure to counseling skills in their training programs or professional development opportunities. There have been advances in evidence-based counseling practices in rehabilitation settings. This tutorial will discuss Motivational Interviewing (MI), with specific focus on the disciplines of speech-language pathology and audiology. It will discuss the background and evidence supporting MI use, and provide guidance for basic techniques that can be implemented immediately into clinical practice. Resources for continued learning are also included.

Des habiletés efficaces en counseling et en communication sont essentielles pour les disciplines de l’orthophonie et de l’audiologie, mais de nombreux cliniciens ont une exposition limitée aux techniques de counseling lors de leurs programmes de formation ou de leurs activités de perfectionnement professionnel. Des progrès ont été réalisés en ce qui a trait aux pratiques de counseling fondées sur les données probantes en réadaptation. Ce tutoriel présentera une technique d’entrevue motivationnelle (Motivational Interviewing (MI)) et sera particulièrement axé sur les disciplines de l’orthophonie et de l’audiologie. Nous examinerons les antécédents de cette technique et les données probantes en appuyant l’utilisation, et nous présenterons des techniques de base pouvant être mises en oeuvre immédiatement dans la pratique clinique. Nous fournirons aussi des ressources pour poursuivre l’apprentissage.
