Motivational Interviewing is a communication style that facilitates behavioural change. In the physiotherapy setting patients will almost always need to commit to a form of change in their day to day actions, whether it is big or small. Understanding Motivational Interviewing (MI) and developing the communication skills and techniques that support this approach can help patients resolve any feelings of ambivalence to change as well as effectively bring about new behaviours.
