You wrote to Nigel above. 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.

All the best!

Your comrade in investigation,
