Motivational Interviewing (MI) – Client Centered and Change Oriented
Motivational Interviewing is grounded in a client centered approach with a focus on building rapport and acceptance in the initial stages of the counseling relationship with an increased amount of change focus as the client moves through the various stages of change.
Through clinical experience and empirical research, the fundamental principles and methodologies of MI have been applied and tested in various settings and research findings have demonstrated its efficacy. MI is now established as an evidence-‐based practice in the treatment of individuals with substance use disorders.
