As a principal requirement of lifestyle medicine is change, the ability to help motivate individuals to change is of paramount importance. Skills to help do this include motivational interviewing and knowledge of how "ready, willing, and able" an individual is, and the barriers and triggers to change for that individual. Procedures are discussed to help facilitate these changes. These provide tactics to help the client move from requiring "extrinsic" to more "intrinsic," and self-rewarding, motivation.
