But I think the question was for me as the author of the recommendation of MI. So I'll attempt an answer based on that presumption. And as you're probably aware, I tried to clarify this with you off List. I redirect you to the website listed above. It _does_ carry a definition, and a good one, about Motivational Interviewing. You might also benefit from reviewing the links at that website, to round out your education on the topic. No harm done Kathy. A simple, but actual reading of the material at the website, not just saying you did, will enlighten you to your greatest desire. As would a review of who you're actually responding to on this List.
