Motivational Interviewing Workshop

Motivational Interviewing is a person-centered directive therapeutic style that works to elicit client's motivations for change. Clients' responses usually contain reasons for change that are personally important for them. This self-talk can be used to address discrepancies between clients' words and actions in a manner that is non-confrontational. Motivational Interviewing is an empirically validated, client-centered form of guiding used to resolve ambivalence and build motivation to change.
