Welcome to the Motivational Interviewing Website!

This web site provides resources for those seeking information on Motivational Interviewing. It includes general information about the approach, as well as links, training resources, and information on reprints and recent research.

In addition to the contributions of Professors Miller and Rollnick, the site has benefited from the input of members of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT), and hosts information about the MINT organization. In addition to providing information on Motivational Interviewing, the site serves as a resource for agencies or organizations who wish to find a skilled and knowledgeable trainer to assist them in implementing or supplementing current motivational services.



What is Motivational Interviewing?

Motivational interviewing is a form of collaborative conversation for strengthening a person's own motivation and commitment to change.

It is a person-centered counseling style for addressing the common problem of ambivalence about change by paying particular attention to the language of change.

It is designed to strengthen an individual's motivation for and movement toward a specific goal by eliciting and exploring the person's own reasons for change within an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion.

The video is a short clip from Motivational Interviewing - An M.I. Learning Resource where members of MINT talk about what Motivational Interviewing is to them.
