Motivational Interviewing is a collaborative, goal-oriented style of communication with particular attention to the language of change. It is designed to strengthen personal motivation and commitment to a specific goal by eliciting and exploring the person’s own reasons for change in an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion. (Motivational Interviewing, Helping People Change, 3rd Ed, Miller and Rollnick, 2013)
Learning MI was a breath of fresh air in my own practice, understanding how to truly engage with my clients and collaboratively guide a conversation about behavior change. It is a gift to share this genuine communication approach with providers while incorporating their professional expertise in health and well-being.
