In Motivational interviewing (MI) providers facilitate patient’s ability to find their internal motivation for behavior change. This method is commonly used in combination with CBT in order to expand the use of coping skills taught for chronic illness management. Our readings and lecture provide an overview of MI, but recent literature has been published on the application of these principles to specific medical conditions. Using this week’s article (see course module) and one additional article of your choice, comment on whether or not you personally view MI strategies as helpful when working with chronically ill patients. Please provide the reference for your selected article and attach it to your original response.
