Practitioners working within alcohol and other drug services are often delighted when they ‘discover’ motivational interviewing (MI). Some regard it as confirmation of a style they believe they are using already, while others see it as representing a radically different approach. Whatever the response, no one can argue that MI is one of the most influential developments to hit social care in decades. Rosemary Kent explains why it has had such an impact and describes how it can be applied to almost all areas of support.
