Motivational Interviewing (MI) helps clients resolve their ambivalence through client-centered  communication
They Need
Help Clients Create The  CHANGE 
/
As a clinician, you serve as a guide to help them elicit self-motivational statements and behavioral change.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) incorporates communication skills that encourage your clients/patients to identify and develop their personal motivation for changing their behaviors.
With MI, Clients engage in self-actualizing conversations in which they create their own solutions for change in their life, giving them internal power and motivation. 
MI Empowers Your Clients
/
People are usually more convinced by reasons they discover themselves, than by those found by others. 
~Blaise Pascal
MI Is Based On The Following Assumptions:
  • Ambivalence about change is normal and constitutes an important motivational obstacle in recovery.
  • Ambivalence can be resolved by working with your client's intrinsic motivations and values.
  • The alliance between you and your client is a collaborative partnership to which you each bring important expertise.
  • An empathic, supportive, yet directive, counseling style provides conditions under which change can occur.
