Abstract [en]

Occupational therapists will constantly meet people with a lack of motivation to deal with changes in life. It quite often creates a feeling of insufficiency in the occupational therapist. Motivational Interviewing, MI, has become a popular method of health care work to support people in changing their lifestyles. Occupational therapists have increasingly come to use MI in clinical practice but it has not been possible to find any study about their experience. The purpose of this study was to describe occupational therapists experiences of using MI. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews with seven occupational therapists and analyzed with a content analysis. The analysis of the data resulted in an overall theme: MI is a valuable method in daily work and strengthens the sense of competence. The result shows that it takes time to learn MI. All participants had experienced that a basic course was not enough. There was still a need for further competence. The occupational therapists had partly modified the way they worked since they learned MI. They did not feel that they had to learn something all new, rather that they had deepened their knowledge supporting everyday work. They felt themselves strengthened in their role as occupational therapists a result they had not quite expected when attending the course.
