Learning how to use Motivational Interviewing, MI, in diabetes care is effective because Motivational Interviewing is an organized, nonjudgmental counseling approach with proven effectiveness and efficacy.
However, MI alone doesn't address internalized weight bias. Research shows that for clients to recover from internalized weight bias, they need to develop self-compassion and self-acceptance, actively engage in efforts to resist damaged social identities, and demand respect, dignity, and fair treatment from their healthcare providers.
Using MI to teach Mindful Eating is fantastic because these two tools support and cultivate a growth mindset. Inclusive Diabetes Care is so excited to present How to use Motivational Interviewing to teach Mindful Eating to your clients with elevated blood sugar.
