This ICOY training provides an overview of motivational interviewing and its key elements for effective practice: Values, Ambivalence, Empathy, the Spirit of MI, O.A.R.S, and Eliciting Change Talk. The main focus of motivational interviewing is to partner with the individual to enhance motivation and utilize ambivalence to build a successful plan for making change. Compared with other non-directive counseling, this method is focused and guiding, allowing for more partnership and collaboration.
