This guide to Motivational Interviewing provides an overview of the potential benefits of this approach, as well as links to training for healthcare professionals.

"Motivational Interviewing is a way of building and strengthening people’s drive to change longstanding behaviours that pose a significant risk to their health. It is an art as much as a science and practice is required to consistently apply the method successfully. Health professionals who develop the skill of Motivational Interviewing have an additional approach to use when they encounter patients who do not want to change or are ambivalent."
