Motivational Interviewing (MI)

Empowering Change through Collaborative Therapy

Motivational Interviewing is a client-centered therapeutic modality that encourages patients to actively participate in their own recovery. It is often used in treating substance abuse as it relies on a patient’s motivation for change within an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion.

How Does Motivational Interviewing Work?

Also known as MI, Motivational Interviewing is a goal-oriented, collaborative modality often used in treatment settings. A trained therapist will work alongside a client to explore the factors influencing their resistance to or fear of change. This patient-centered approach helps people commit to their identified goals by increasing motivation and spurring commitment to change.

Is Motivational Interviewing Effective?

Studies have shown that MI can be effective in treating substance abuse, eating disorders, and other behavioral health issues. It is often used in conjunction with other therapeutic modalities and interventions and works well with those struggling unprepared or unwilling to change. Motivational Interviewing examines emotional resistance to spark one’s intrinsic desire for transformation.
