Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing [MI] has been shown to enhance the effectiveness of those in healthcare or helping roles by initiating and supporting change. Originally used in the management of addiction MI has now been adapted and used across the health care continuum in the management and prevention of chronic disease [Borelli et al., 2007, p.1023; Levensky et al., 2007, p.57].
Randomized controlled trails have found that MI has an impact on lifestyle choices e.g. smoking cessation, diet and exercise, hazardous drinking and chronic disease management compared to ‘standard’ approaches such as client education and risk reduction interventions [Levensky et al., 2007, p.52].
