Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based approach of talking with people about behaviour CHANGE. The FASD Prevention Program promotes the use of MI as an effective, nonjudgemental way to talk with girls and women about their alcohol use before they are pregnant and during pregnancy. These conversations can help to prevent Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. MI is also a very useful approach for making other health changes (e.g., diabetes management, quitting smoking, exercising).
