Dietitians are in the business of changing behavior. Nutrition and behavior change are closely related. Nutrition status is often based on choices, and most people need more than education to change their behavior. Motivational interviewing activates the patient's own motivation for change. It's a collaborative partnership between the patient and the dietitian. Through motivational interviewing, the dietitian establishes rapport and respect for the patient, while drawing out their own motivations.
