For this re-launch of SWN, we’re going to share a free article each week from a leading school mental health journal, Advances in School Mental Health Promotion.

This week’s article:  “Motivational interviewing as a framework to guide school-based coaching.”

Authors:  Jon Lee, Andy Frey, Keith Herman, & Wendy Reinke

Why it matters:  Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a flexible, evidence-based intervention that can be easily adapted to help school social workers in their consultation work with teachers to decrease teacher resistance to implementing behavior plans.
