Motivational Interviewing - Practices from the Heart
Available on-demand. Login or create an account to register to view the recording.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is widely embraced, evidence-based conversation guiding style and approach (relational and technical components) for awakening self-awareness of a person's choices to heal, embrace behavior change, and grow. Through the use of MI, practitioners evoke surface self-awareness of the need for behavior change within the patients, empowering them to leverage their inner resources (strengths, resilience) to choose to heal and change. A core principle of Motivational Interviewing is that health professionals elicit reasons for change from the patient by discussing the patient's values and goals and contrasting them with their current behavior. This process encourages patients to consider how their life might be improved if they were to change their behavior.
