MI is a widely embraced, evidence-based conversation style for awakening self-awareness of a person’s choices to heal and embrace behavior change.
Through MI, direct service providers surface self-awareness of the need for behavior change within the served person, empowering them to leverage their inner resources (strengths, resilience) to choose to heal and change.
This approach to service considers the whole needs of those you serve, emphasizing going beyond cultural sensitivity. In trauma-informed care, we consider the entire experience and wellbeing of the population we serve. Motivational Interviewing supports and adheres to Cultural Humility and Reverence, honoring the journey of the individual.
