Motivational Interviewing

Counseling Services, Types of Therapy

Motivational interviewing is a psychotherapeutic approach that seeks to move an individual away from a state of indecision or uncertainty. It guides individuals towards finding the motivation to make positive decisions and accomplish established goals.

This intervention helps people become motivated to change the behaviors that are preventing them from making healthier choices. It can also prepare individuals for further, more specific forms of therapy. Research has shown that this intervention works well with individuals who begin treatment unmotivated or unprepared for change. It is also beneficial for people who are hostile and dealing with anger.

 

The Goal

In motivational interviewing, the first goal is to increase the person’s motivation, and the second goal is for the person to commit to change. Motivational interviewing is generally short-term counseling that requires just one or two sessions. It can also be included as an intervention along with other, longer-term therapies.

Since motivational interviewing is a skill that improves with time, look for a licensed mental health professional who is empathetic and supportive as well as a good listener.

 

Talk to your primary care doctor about your symptoms; or seek help directly from a mental health professional. If you’re reluctant to see a mental health professional, reach out to someone else who may be able to help guide you to treatment, whether it’s a friend or loved one, a teacher, a faith leader, or someone else you trust.
