What is Motivational Interviewing? Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a gentle, person-centered directive method of communication for enhancing intrinsic motivation to change by exploring and resolving ambivalence. It is an effective intervention used across behavioral domains that include health, wellness, and prevention. A strong body of evidence shows that its use can improve engagement in counseling and addiction services and improve treatment outcomes. Over 119 clincial studies have shown that MI is highly effective in fostering positive change across a wide range of health behaviors.
