==Eight Stages in Learning Motivational Interviewing==

1. Overall Spirit of MI
Openness to a way of thinking and working that is collaborative rather than prescriptive, honors the client=s autonomy and selfdirection, and is more about evoking than installing. This involves at least a willingness to suspend an authoritarian role, and to explore client capacity rather than incapacity, with a genuine interest in the client=s experience and perspectives.
