Motivational interviewing in health care – an interview by Mark Wallace Bell

MI in action

I indicated in our last newsletter that over the next few months we would be putting up on line a number of motivational interviewing sessions that model the diversity and richness of MI practice. This month we feature Mark Wallace-Bell undertaking a session after a referral from the GP of a man with issues related to diabetes. Mark skilfully works through the four processes of motivational interviewing (engaging, focussing, evoking and planning). Pay particular attention to how Mark uses E-P-E (elicit, provide, elicit) to deliver information around diabetes that will assist the client to be more informed around his decision about what his next steps might be. Have a look.
