Motivational interviewing – an interview where Ian talks with Ricky

Ian interviewOver the next couple of months we will be putting up on line much of the MI DVD that we developed here in New Zealand last year. The DVD has our particular flavour and voices. This interview by Ian MacEwan is a wonderful example of a gentle motivational conversation with Ricky whose drug use is creating problems in his life. The interview steps through the four processes of MI – engaging, focusing, evoking and planning. It is also a good demonstration of the OARS skills along with the spirit of MI – partnership, acceptance,  compassion and evocation. Click on the link to watch this clip Ian MacEwan with Ricky
