Motivational Interviewing (MI) is the powerful evidence-based method for engaging intrinsic client motivation. MI is proven to be a method that helps people resolve ambivalence toward change through discovery of intrapersonal motivation by placing complete responsibility for change on the individual. Motivational Interviewing has applications in various settings, giving staff skills to help their clients succeed through appropriate evidence based practices.
