Motivate Healthy Habits

Rick Botelho and his Motivate Healthy Habits site is one of my favourite authors and websites on motivation and self management especially in primary care.
Take a moment or two to read through this site, it gives some of the foundation information on health change for individuals.

I’ve also included a great powerpoint presentation by Rick Botelho – even though it’s quite lengthy, there are some brilliant comparisons between Motivational Interviewing and Motivational Practice.

I will be posting more on this approach later, as I’ve found this to be one of the best ways for me to work with patients as it is both respectful of their values, while allowing me to be clear about consequences based on the evidence found in the literature.
