Substance use disorders (SUDs) are widely prevalent, frequently comorbid with serious mental illnesses, often undetected and rarely treated adequately. General psychiatrists have an important role in delivering care to this underserved population, and training them in motivational interviewing (MI) skills can expand and improve SUD treatment. This course describes the results of a 2011-2012 survey of U.S. psychiatric training program directors and chief residents evaluating the differences in attitudes associated with MI training. It includes a discussion suggesting that training general psychiatrists in MI skills is important for SUD treatment, citing results indicating that chief residents not trained in MI were more likely to feel their interventions were ineffective and had less confidence in their treatment than those who did receive MI training.
