Understanding Motivational Interviewing: Motivational interviewing is a client-centered and collaborative counseling approach designed to help individuals explore and resolve ambivalence about behavior change. It involves active listening, empathy, and guiding individuals toward self-determined goals. Application and Scope of Motivational Interviewing: Motivational interviewing is applied to address a wide range of concerns, including substance abuse, addiction, weight management, and behavioral changes. It's particularly effective for individuals who may have mixed feelings about change and are seeking support to make healthier choices. Motivational interviewing is relevant for people of various backgrounds and stages of readiness for change. What to Expect in Motivational Interviewing Sessions: In motivational interviewing sessions, you'll work with a trained therapist who will create a non-judgmental and supportive environment. The therapist will actively listen, ask open-ended questions, and help you explore your goals and values. Through this collaborative process, you'll clarify your motivations for change and develop a plan to achieve your desired outcomes.
