Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a therapeutic technique designed to assist clients in their journey towards recovery. The technique originally was utilized by Social Work for substance use disorders but has demonstrated efficacy in other populations. Embedded with the techniques of MI are empathy, reflective listening, the clients own ambivalence, and appropriate questions. Learning the techniques of MI gives the client with a partner on their journey and provides for the stages of change so that positive change can take place, in client's own time.
