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.

Concurrent symposia and individual paper sessions will highlight the use and effectiveness of MI, training and implementation, effective ingredients of MI and innovations in MI theory in areas as varied as vaccine hesitancy, primary care, substance use treatment, education, employment, veterinary care, and more; with diverse populations (refugees, people with intellectual disabilities, older adults, adolescents, gender and sexual minority individuals, and more); using novel methods (digital interventions, virtual self-conversation, and more).

End of the day sessions will include a panel on MI to reduce national violence escalation and lightning talks focused on MI’s mechanisms of action as well as MI’s ability to bridge differences of culture and identity.

ICMI 2022 will also feature a conference-long virtual poster area, the opportunity for research consultations with experienced researchers, and a networking area where participants can engage in group chats or request one-to-one meetings with fellow conference participants.

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.
