DO YOU THINK YOU DO MI NATURALLY?

“How can clinicians use Motivational Interviewing to target patient goals and counteract resistance?”

  • You can cause harm with poor clinical outcome by YOU instead of the Patient arguing for change
    • Worst Case = provider trying to fix, prescribe, scold, and tell (when patients isn’t ready)
  • Telling people to do something = strong correlation with causing harm
    • There is a time and place for education/advice, though most of time haven’t primed patient to be receptive to it
      • If you haven’t primed = wasted time
  • Providers have less burn out, less cynicism, and enjoy their job more
