We were pleased to welcome April Carcone to discuss her research on the dynamics of change talk and technological advances in MI. Lessons From The Lab April is a member of the Behavioral Sciences Division of the Department of Family Medicine and Public Health Sciences at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, USA. April is a social worker by training with over 18 year experience in developing and testing behavioral health interventions. She has studied Motivational Interviewing (MI) for more than a decade. Her research has examined how counselors and health care providers facilitate behavior change through the evocation of change talk. This has included collaborative work with computer scientists to automate the communication coding process using machine-learning models. April’s work to understand how MI facilitates change has informed her current research to develop and test eHealth behavioral interventions to improve health outcomes among emerging adults with type 1 diabetes.
