Motivational Interviewing can be helpful in moving people to make healthier decisions and overcoming barriers to change. This learning collaborative will provide disease intervention providers with an opportunity to recognize ambivalence around adopting safer health practices and offer some strategies, tools and techniques that can be used to support people in making healthier decisions for improved wellness.


  • Define Motivational Interviewing (MI).
  • Identify the six stages of change and recognize when the person you are working with is ready for change.
  • Describe how open-ended questions, affirmations, reflections, and summarizing (OARS) can be used as a questioning strategy to facilitate behavioral change.
  • Utilize Motivational Interviewing to assist a person you are working with to make behavioral change.
