DIMENSIONS: Motivational Interviewing for Behavior Change
Do you want to improve the quality of your communication with patients? Or support your patients to successfully change their health behaviors? As a healthcare provider, you may feel frustrated when working with patients that seem “resistant” or “non-compliant” when it comes to behavior change. This can even affect your experience of connection, effectiveness, and job satisfaction. If you are interested in improving your patient interactions and increasing your ability to effectively support patients towards health behavior change, Motivational Interviewing (MI) training can help.
Motivational Interviewing is a collaborative conversational style that strengthens a person’s own motivation and commitment to change by exploring and resolving ambivalence. MI is a guiding approach that is used in a variety of healthcare settings to assist individuals to prepare themselves to take action.
There is robust scientific evidence to support the efficacy of MI in helping patients make positive health behavior changes. What some providers do not know is that MI affords a variety of potential benefits to the MI practitioner as well. Implementation of MI in your practice will likely be beneficial to your patients, improve clinical outcomes, and may decrease your own feelings of professional “burn-out,” providing a boost to the enthusiasm you bring to your work.
