Motivational Interviewing (MI) offers a practical, evidence-based approach for supporting clients in making and sustaining positive behavior changes. Originally developed in the drug and alcohol field, over 300 clinical trials demonstrate the efficacy of MI across a range of populations and target behaviors.* In particular, MI has been shown to be especially effective in brief clinical encounters and for individuals not ready or unsure about change.
