What Is Motivational Interviewing?

Motivational Interviewing is a collaborative, person-centered form of guiding to elicit and strengthen motivation for change. It uses people’s own goals and values to increase their intrinsic motivation by exploring and resolving ambivalence about changing their behavior.

Over 200 controlled clinical trials from several nations have demonstrated the effectiveness of Motivational Interviewing with alcohol abuse, substance misuse, tobacco use, diet, exercise, water purification, cardiac rehabilitation, diabetes management, problem gambling, and other behaviors directly related to health.
