IMPLEMENTATION OF POWER MOTIVATION TRAINING AS A REHABILITATION COUNTERMEASURE FOR DWIS

The objectives of the project were: (a) To generate the interest and commitment of ASAPs and treatment agencies in utilizing Power Motivation Training (PMT) with DWIs; (b) to train counselors and staff from the ASAP and treatment agencies to conduct PMT with DWIs; (c) to assist in the design and implementation of a research design to evaluate the impact of PMT with DWIs; and (d) to provide on-going technical assistance to staff trained in PMT. During the first year of the project five ASAPs were involved. Organizational problems led to four of the ASAPs not using PMT with DWIs following training of staff. None of the ASAPs implemented an evaluation design. During the second year of the project, efforts were made to establish organizational commitment of ASAPs and treatment agencies involved in the project to the use of PMT with DWIs, and to help these agencies plan for its implementation. Eight ASAP sites were involved in the training and all are currently utilizing PMT with DWIs. An evaluation design was established and implemented in all of the ASAPs as a part of the Short-Term Rehabilitation Evaluation Project.
