Abstract

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an effective evidence-based approach to overcoming the ambivalence that prevents many people from making desired behavioral changes. Motivating patients to adopt a healthy treatment plan during physical therapy visits is a major challenge facing health care providers. Traditional approaches to patient care often rely on advice giving and direct persuasion. This can easily lead to confrontation and may result in resistance; particularly in patients who are ambivalent about changing their behavior Skillful application by a clinician provides the platform for patients to talk about change instead of exhibiting resistance.
