Abstract

There is a critical need to engage theory-driven research related to the deployment of mental health promotion initiatives and student outcomes. A growing body of research supporting the use of motivational interviewing and engagement strategies in education suggests that this approach may be promising to better understand mechanisms through which coaches, mentors or consultants influence the change in behaviour and improve the implementation of effective practices. Motivational interviewing is a specific approach to engagement that works to raise motivation for fostering change, and may also serve as a useful approach for maximizing teachers' roles within school-based mental health promotion efforts. In this article, we describe the Motivational Interviewing Navigation Guide (MING), which consists of a five-step process to motivate teachers to implement critical features of an intervention with fidelity. In addition, the potential barriers to implement the MING approach, as well as recommendations for future research were discussed.
