Motivational Interviewing Skills for Coaching
Investigators on this development project are creating a training platform, the Motivational Interviewing Training and Assessment System (MITAS) for Coaches, to equip instructional personnel with the conversational skills necessary to more effectively engage teachers in the coaching process, improve teacher implementation of evidence-based classroom behavior management strategies, and influence student outcomes.
Researchers on this four-year project are (a) creating a fully-developed version of the MITAS for Coaches via an iterative development process; (b) investigating the usability, feasibility, and fidelity of implementation of the MITAS for Coaches; and (c) examining the promise of the MITAS for Coaches to influence proximal and distal outcomes.
