Motivational interviewing (MI).

       Motivational interviewing (MI) is a psychotherapeutic
    method that was developed by William Miller and Stephen
    Rollnick, originally described in 1983 (Miller, 1983). Miller
    and Rollnick (2002) define MI as a client-centered, directive
    method for enhancing intrinsic motivation to change by
    exploring and resolving ambivalence. Its original application
    was in substance abuse treatment with adults, where it was
    developed in response to confrontational methods used in
    this field during the 1970s and 1980s. Since then, it has been
    used in many different areas, including general medical care,
    health promotion, social work and corrections (Miller &
    Rollnick, 2002, p. xiv)
