Motivational Interviewing for Victim Advocates:
MI is grounded in the assumption that when a person is hesitant to make changes or big decisions, it is, very likely, because he/she has unresolved ambivalence about change.The same could be said for victims/ survivors who feel:
--Ambivalent about seeking treatment
--Ambivalent about leaving an abusive relationship
--Ambivalent about participating in the justice system
More importantly, because MI is a client-centered approach,which emphasizes autonomy, compassion, and respecting boundaries, MI offers away to operationalize and measure trauma-informed care.
