Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Motivational interviewing is perfect way of eradicating poor adherence in a patient. Psychologists and counselors have come up with a perfect change of stage in motivational interviewing.

These stages are the following:

1.  Asking open ended questions

2.  Making Affirmations.

3.  Using Reflections

4.  Using Summary

:

1.  Asking open ended questions

The counselor asks the patient open ended questions. This questions challenge the patient while making him/her feel free with the counselor.

2.  Making Affirmations.

This takes the form of compliments or statements of appreciation and understanding. It helps build rapport and validate and support the patient during the process of change. It is most effective when the patient’s strengths and efforts for change are noticed and affirmed

3.  Use Reflections*

Involves rephrasing a statement to capture the implicit meaning and feeling of a patient’s statement. It encourages continual personal exploration and helps people understand their motivations more fully. It can be used to amplify or reinforce desire for change

4.  Use of summary

It is the final stage and it links discussions and ‘checks in’ with the patient. It also ensures mutual understanding of the discussion so far. It clearly points out discrepancies between the person’s current situation and future goals.It also demonstrates listening and understand the patient’s perspective
