Motivational interviewing is a well-known communication method used in conversations. It is important within this conversation that the client or patient knows how to convince theirselves to change. To achieve this, the focus is mainly on what is stopping the patient or client. And also what the reasons are to change.
To be able to experience this and to be able to practice with it, the VR project Motivational Interviewing has been started. Together with HAN and RadboudUMC, we have drawn up and elaborated three scenarios.
- Joyce is overweight but often feels too tired to do something about it because of broken nights.
- Paul has osteoarthritis in his knee and has to exercise more, but he can’t find the right motivation.
- Anna wants to quit smoking but has lost a bit of confidence in herself after all the failed attempts.
