This ICOY training provides an overview of motivational interviewing and its critical elements for effective practice: D.E.A.R.S, O.A.R.S, Decisional Balance, and Eliciting Change Talk. The main focus of motivational interviewing is to partner with the individual to enhance motivation and resolve ambivalence about making a behavior change. Compared with non-directive counseling, this method is more focused and goal-directed, allowing for more partnership.
