Eliciting change through Motivational Interviewing
We can’t change others unless they want to change themselves. Telling someone what they need to do to change will not solve the problem, in fact it will probably create more resistance to change all together.
Motivational Interviewing is a person centered approach that helps to develop discrepancy and bridge the gap between where someone is and where they need to and want to be.
Motivational Interviewing will help to:
– Build awareness of what helps and stops people from changing
– Explore the reason for changing or resisting change
– Elicit and strengthen personal motivation and commitment for change
– Indentify how you can support an individual through the change process.
