Integrative medicine includes the best of conventional medicine but redefines health
to include the person's body, mind, spirituality and community — with a special
focus on the patient-practitioner bond. Borrowing from integrative medicine, Health
Coaching for Behavior Change: Motivational Interviewing Methods and Practice
presents motivational interviewing skills and how they can be used to invite and elicit
behavior change and impact health coaching outcomes.
In this 35-page report, a physician and a health psychologist from the field of integrative
medicine affirm how training in motivational interviewing, self-management and even
spirituality and healing can enrich the health coaching encounter. Motivational interviewing
is a client-centered counseling approach developed in part by Professor William R. Miller,
Ph.D. and Professor Stephen Rollnick, Ph.D.
