"In a 2015 Healthcare Intelligence Network survey on patient engagement, 50 percent of respondents indicated that the behavioral health population was the most challenging to engage. However, this June 30 program will illustrate that the goal-oriented, client-centered counseling style of motivational interviewing can elicit the desired behavior change, by helping individuals to explore and resolve ambivalence."
