WHAT IS MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING?
Motivational Interviewing is a way to have a particular kind of conversation with someone about their life, and exploring the possibility of making a change in a direction they feel would be positive.
MI is had its start in clinical circles as the leading evidence-based approach for how to have an effective conversation with someone about their alcohol or substance use.
It’s application has now has evolved to helping people consider making changes in behaviors around addictions and harm reduction, healthy eating, exercise, sleep habits, sex, relationships and parenting, depression and anxiety, healing trauma, and many other behaviors, conditions, and situations that can stifle the human spirit.
Motivational Interviewing is (at this point in time) the best researched and most effective approach for supporting the conditions of change, and at the same time affirming a person’s autonomy to decide for themselves what is right for them.
