Motivational Interviewing to change one’s practice.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a recognized best-practice therapeutic approach in psychology to help people realize changes in their lives and has been the subject of over 1,000 peer-reviewed articles. It is a collaborative method of communication aimed at strengthening personal motivation for, and commitment to, a specific goal. This is done by eliciting and exploring an individual’s own reasons for change within an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion.
MI is useful with change goals such as choices about tobacco, alcohol or drug use; eating or exercise habits; adjusting your lifestyle after receiving a physical or mental health diagnosis; or just getting “unstuck.”
