Motivational Interviewing is a goal-oriented, client-centered counseling style for eliciting behavior change by helping clients to explore and resolve ambivalence.

On the other hand, if a person believes few of their peers do something, they are less likely to do it also.

At 3rd Millennium, we are committed to providing the best possible solutions for your students and clients. One of the ways we do this is by incorporating evidence-based practices into our courses. One of these practices is “risk perception.”

Risk perception is a measurement of how much of a risk someone thinks a certain behavior has.
