SEREBRENIC, Flavia  e  LIMA, Danielle Ruiz. Towards 40 years of motivational interviewing: evolvement of the approach. Mudanças [online]. 2019, vol.27, n.2, pp. 45-52. ISSN 0104-3269.

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an approach that relies on empathy, reflexive listening and ambivalence resolution to assist people in the process of changing. Since its creation, important theoretical revisions have been made with the aim of improving the method according to different demands, but literature in Brazil is found to be out of date. Method: A non-systematic review of literature on MI was carried out, seeking to synthesize and present the main theoretical changes made. Results and Discussion: The main principals and phases of change were among some of the changes proposed, which now reflect the complexity of the process and provide more structured guidelines for the therapist, also clarifying some of the original concepts. Conclusions: Considering the increase of the MI utility in various contexts and changes made over the last decades, it is believed that this update will favor the teaching, research and practice of MI in the country.
