Motivational interviewing is a kind of counseling that encourages
behavior change by helping a person resolve mixed feelings.
A counselor helps a person explore his or her mixed feelings about
quitting a harmful behavior, such as drug or alcohol abuse. The person is
encouraged to find personal motivation to change the behavior.
