INTRODUCTION

As the name implies, Motivational Interviewing (MI) is intended for motivational struggles. Struggles of changing from a pattern of behavior that causes distress either to the individual or to others.

It is designed for individuals who are not willing to change and those who are willing but find it difficult to do so.

It was developed by William R. Miller and Stephen Rollnick in 1989.

A lot of the techniques used in Motivational Interviewing (MI) were  obtained from what is called Client-Centered Psychotherapy developed in the 1940s by Carl Rogers.

MI has been found to be effective in individuals who abuse psychoactive substances or engage in other addictive behaviors like gambling, and in those who have problems adhering to medications or other forms of treatment.
