Motivational interviewing is designed to help a person achieve or work towards a goal that will ultimately improve their life. There isn’t a lot of information here, and the type of help that your cousin needs will need to be determined by her if she’s able. The counseling technique involves four separate parts including: • Identify and ask broad questions that allow the client to understand the need for behavioral changes. • Encourage realizations that point the client in the direction of change. • The counselor must be able to listen to what the client says and then to mirror the information back in a way that helps the client to better understand themselves. • In order for motivational interviewing to be effective, there needs to be an endgame or a goal that everyone is working towards. Being able to summarize the information in a way that explains the need for those behavioral changes is another integral skill.
