What Is Motivational Interviewing?
Motivational interviewing is a person-centered behavioral therapy meant to help you recognize how every choice you make affects your behaviors. The various principles of MI will guide you through identifying motivation for implementing changes that make it easier to meet your personal recovery goals. Introducing positive behavioral changes is the primary goal of MI and, in each session, you will do the following:
- Be encouraged to voice your goals and desires
- Provide personal motivations for treatment
- Talk through actions you can take to improve your life
- Voice your arguments for personal change
Every clinician and staff member at kathy ireland® Recovery Centers believes in creating a supportive and non-judgmental environment where you can increase your self-confidence and self-reliance. MI is one of the ways we can help prepare you for independent, long-term sobriety. Our trusted therapists will show you how to motivate yourself to overcome uncertainties, fears, or ambivalence related to your recovery.
