The UIHI is pleased to announce a new Motivational Interviewing (MI) resource section on our website. MI is a non-judgmental, non-confrontational and empathic method of communication to bring about behavior change. The new resource section offers educational materials designed to introduce anyone to MI, including the uses of MI (both in and outside of a clinical setting), specific interaction techniques, a skills acquisition worksheet and more. MI has broad applicability to any disease or condition which involves a behavioral component, such as diabetes or substance abuse. Compared to other approaches, MI is a relatively inexpensive method and has the added advantage of being flexible for use over the telephone or in-person.
The Motivational Interviewing resource section is available on the UIHI’s Health Equity Resources page. For questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (206) 812-3030.
