Motivational Interviewing: Helping youth to overcome ambivalence

Combining both non-directive and directive elements, Motivational Interviewing (MI) was formulated by Miller and Rollnick in the 1980s as a way to alleviate a person’s ambivalence about change. The essence of MI is that change occurs through increasing clients’ intrinsic motivation and that external approaches, such as persuasion, coercion, and confrontation, will not be successful. Initially used in addictions counseling, MI is now used in a variety of counselling settings and has significant empirical support behind it.
