There are two categories coded in the MICA: Verbal Interventions (microskills and MI strategies) and MI Intentions. The microskills or behavior counts tallied each time they occur. The two MI strategies and the five MI Intentions each are assigned a global score. For more information, see the MICA Manual. All feedback is welcome!
The MICA was developed by Casey Jackson, Susan Butterworth, Ali Hall, and John Gilbert – all members of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers. MICA was designed to provide practitioners with easily digestible, structured and specific feedback regarding their efforts to use the motivational interviewing approach with their clients.
Reliability & Validity
Comprehensive reliability and validity testing was conducted by researchers at Washington State University. Results show good internal consistency, high correlation between related MICA and MITI scores, and excellent interrater reliability.
