MI is registered with SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices and with The California Clearinghouse for Evidence-Based (CEBC) Practices for Child Welfare Services. According to CEBC, “Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a goal-directed, client-centered counseling style for eliciting behavioral change by helping clients to explore and resolve ambivalence. The operational assumption in MI is that ambivalent attitudes or lack of resolve is the primary obstacle to behavioral change, so that the examination and resolution of ambivalence becomes its key goal. MI has been applied to a wide range of problem behaviors related to alcohol and substance abuse as well as health promotion, medical treatment adherence, and mental health issues.”
