Motivational Interviewing is a communication style which focuses on exploring and resolving ambivalence and centers on motivational processes within the individual that facilitate change. The method is collaborative and person-centered, supporting change in a manner congruent with the person's own values and concerns. This presentation will focus on understanding of the fundamental principles and spirit of Motivational Interviewing. In addition participants will learn the basic tenants of Motivational Interviewing to help elicit “change talk” primarily when an individual is ambivalent about change.
