One of the main approaches being used by the counseling staff at the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center is Motivational Interviewing. This is a collaborative conversation style approach for strengthening a person’s own motivation and commitment to change. This approach is strengths-based and is based on principles of partnership, acceptance, compassion and evocation. There are three different ways that staff at the Women’s Center are involved with Motivational Interviewing:  counseling, training and coaching members of the U.Va. community, and professional presentations.
