What is Motivational Interviewing?



Motivational Interviewing (MI) is collaborative, goal oriented method of communication with particular attention to the language of change. It is intended to strengthen personal motivation for and commitment to a target behaviour change by eliciting and exploring an individual's own arguments for change.

Originally developed by William Miller and Steve Rollnick in 1991 for helping people with addiction problems, MI is now being applied more widely in health care, criminal justice, vocational, rehabilitation and mental health settings.
