Abstract: Motivational Interviewing, as developed by Miller and Rollnick (2002), is an evidence-based method for assisting clients to identify and resolve ambivalence about change. It is both client centered and directive. Jesus demonstrated expert skill in motivational interviewing during interactions with people He encountered, as recorded in the Gospels. This podcast will focus on the core theory and skills of motivational interviewing, with emphasis on how Jesus identified and resolved ambivalence. Examples of how Biblical terminology and world view of the Christian faith can be integrated into motivational interviewing will also be discussed.
