Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity (MITI) coding services: The best way to improve your MI practice is with regular feedback based on recordings of MI conversations.

Trained coders use the Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity (MITI) tool to objectively measure the practitioner’s use of MI, including measures of reflective listening, open questions and other MI adherent and non-adherent behaviours, as well as the spirit of MI, resulting in specific skills and global scores.

How does it work? Practitioners send in recordings (digital or analogue) after obtaining their client’s informed consent. A twenty minute block of each recording is coded by MI-trained coders using the MITI. The practitioner receives an analysis sheet showing the MITI results and a feedback sheet with suggestions about one or two areas on which the practitioner might chose to focus for improvement of his/her MI practice.
