The motivational interviewing is a structured intervention designed to motivate the patient. It is a client-centered, directive method for enhancing intrinsic motivation to change by exploring and resolving ambivalence. This approach is different from pressuring a person through threats of negative health consequences, shame, or guilt. The core communications skills of motivational interviewing-asking, informing, and listening are well suited to helping people talk about, commit to, and undertake health behavior change. Empathy, hope, and respect provide the foundation for what is possible in recovery from co-occurring disorders. That?s why practitioners show individuals that they are listening and understand issues from their perspective by using reflective statements. Conventional (health) education, focusing on disseminating information and giving normative advice, is insufficient to achieve sustained behavioral changes. A counseling approach, motivational interviewing (MI), is potentially useful in changing oral health behaviors. This presentation will present a tool for helping patients feel engaged and in control of their health and care. In addition, suggesting ways to guide and motivate parents on how to use their authority effectively to implement healthy family lifestyles
