The Spirit of Motivational Interviewing Evolves - Part Two

I suppose it is true that a person trying to sell you into an MLM could arguably be acting out of compassion:  they want to free you from your employer, help you build your own business and find financial success (at least this is some of the typical catch phrases one encounters with MLMs).  So motivational interviewing fits for these folks.

Well at least under the current second edition of Motivational Interviewing. 

However, the upcoming third edition will integrate the core ethical concepts of: nonmaleficence, beneficence, autonomy and justice.

Wow.  Goodbye motivational intervening "applications" to network marketing.  What will Michael Oliver do?

These four concepts, often referred to as bioethical principles, are commonly accepted health care ethics developed by Thomas  Beauchamp, James Childress -- arguably the most well known and influential principles in the world.

How do you think the bringing these concepts to the forefront in the performance of motivational interviewing will impact the field?
