Integrative Health and Wellness Fall Webinar Series: Eliciting Client’s Intrinsic Motivation

This continuing education series will breakdown how to collaborate with clients to identify their intrinsic motivation based on interests, values, and self-exploration. The literature indicates there are different forms of motivation that can inspire healthy behavior change, intrinsic and extrinsic. Extrinsic motivation is driven by external rewards. While intrinsic motivation is driven by enjoyment of the task itself. Research has shown that extrinsic motivation only keeps clients motivated for the short term and shifting to intrinsic motivation increases the chance to achieve long term results (Teixeira, Silva, Mata, Palmeira, & Markland, 2012). Interestingly, the most fundamental fact about motivation is that human beings cannot be forced to change their behaviors. Hence, an individuals’ motivation to change is the most significant piece information a health coach or health care professional can use to guide healthy behavior change (Seifert, Chapman, Hart, & Perez, 2012).
