MI is designed to strengthen a person’s own motivation for change through the process of exploring their internal motivation, what they value and hope for. MI is grounded in a way of being with people that fosters safety, acceptance, trust, and compassion. “Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a collaborative conversation style for strengthening a person’s own motivation and commitment to change.” Miller & Rollnick (2013)
