Talking to Change: An MI Podcast. Episode 36: The Psycholinguistics of MI, with Paul Amrhein, PhD

In this episode, Glenn and Sebastian talk with experimental psycholinguist Paul Amrhein, PhD, who worked with Bill Miller in the 90s on exploring the nature and role of client language evoked during MI as a predictor of substance use outcomes. He talks here about the original DARRN-C coding system; category, valence, and strength of change language; double-sided reflections and the reflection to question ratio; psycholinguistics beyond substance use conversations; change talk; and how experience affects learning MI.
