In contrast, Motivational Interviewing (MI) is based on a different assumption of human behaviour change.
It concludes that motivation to change is elicited “from within the patient” rather than externally imposed upon the patient by a practitioner. Various approaches on how to implement MI into everyday dental practice will be presented in this webinar.
While communicating with the patient, the oral health professional will
- be able to roll with resistance towards change,
- resolve ambivalence to facilitate change, and
- increase self-efficacy to strengthen new behavior
