Brief Negotiated Interview (BNI) Script

The BNI is a "brief intervention" and has foundations in motivational interviewing (MI) techniques. The BNI helps health care providers explore health behavior change with patients in a respectful, non-judgmental way. Instead of telling the patient what changes he/she should make, the BNI is intentionally designed to elicit reasons for change and action steps from the patient.
