Many of the clients we work with struggle with the need to make changes in their lives. Their ambivalence about making changes is normal if one considers the conflict that naturally arises, as change can lead to a combination of positive and negative consequences. The strategies of Motivational Interviewing allow a practitioner to use a directive, client centered counseling style for eliciting change by helping clients explore and resolve ambivalence. Rather than confronting clients about the need to change, it leads them toward self-confrontation as a way to become unstuck from their indecision about change. The strategies also help clients strengthen their commitment to change specific aspects of their lives once they have decided to work toward change.
