The purpose of this directed project was to develop a free online curriculum on the basics of motivational interviewing intended for professionals or students in the field of dietetics. The goal was to develop a website called, “A Dietetics-Focused Motivational Interviewing Basics Course” at no cost that would be easily accessible by the target audience. This website was intended to be a resource to sharpen the skills of dietetics professionals and students in the basics of motivational interviewing by incorporating interactive learning with four PowerPoint presentations, class quizzes, written activities, example counseling videos, and a pre/post-test. The program curriculum was developed based on the most recent literature on motivational interviewing and nutrition and online curriculum development. It is the job of dietitians to promote positive behavior change of their patients or clients. Availability of a free, easily accessible MI resource, may help dietitians to maintain client-centered counseling skills.
