Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based approach to promoting positive behavior change. Years of research has shown Motivational Interviewing to be a well-established approach across a wide range of settings, problems, and populations. It is most effective for clients ambivalent about changing or initially not even considering making changes.
