You might have more success with getting people to change behaviors if you use motivational interviewing techniques. Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a goal-oriented, client-centered counseling style for eliciting behavior change by helping clients to explore and resolve ambivalence.
Why does Motivational Interviewing work?
- MI helps people identify their own motivations for making lifestyle changes.
- MI is the opposite of telling people what to do and how to do it.
- MI activates discussion about change and minimizes talk about being stuck in unhealthy habits.
- MI involves specific, measurable skills designed to create effective interactions.

What past participants said about this workshop—
Awesome class! I would recommend this class to all providers taking care of patients in all disciplines.
I attended the Motivational Interviewing workshop two years ago by Jonnae Tillman and was blown away by the practicality and logic of the process. It opened a door for me to get to the bottom of why I was having difficulty seeing results with my patients. I still use the process today.
This was one of the best trainings I have ever attended in my professional career.
