We are pleased to announce the 6th International Conference on Motivational Interviewing, to be held virtually from 13-16 June, 2022.

ICMI 2022 continues the tradition of the five previous international MI conferences (Interlaken 2008, Stockholm 2010, Venice 2012, Amsterdam 2014, Philadelphia 2017) by bringing together researchers and MI enthusiasts from around the world to share and explore research on MI, this time through a sophisticated virtual conference platform.

Each of the four conference days will begin with an invited keynote address, on the topics of MI and global health threats; MI and diverse, marginalized, and underserved populations; MI process and mechanisms of action; and MI for helping individuals change. These will be followed by concurrent sessions of accepted submissions and a special end of the day plenary session featuring “lightning” talks and other lively and interactive formats. ICMI 2022 will also feature a conference-long virtual poster session, the opportunity for individual and small group research consultations with experienced researchers, and a conference lobby where participants can socialize and discuss the sessions of the day or any other MI-related topic.

We expect presentations on quantitative research and qualitative and mixed methods studies, clinical trials and implementation science, organizational and systems change research, research methods, research in progress, and more. Talks will highlight the implications of new research findings for MI practice, theory, and training.

We welcome all who are doing research on MI to submit proposals for presentations. We invite all who appreciate and wish to learn more about what recent and cutting-edge research has to teach us about MI to join us for an exciting and engaging event.
