09 November 2015

Steer Davies Gleave trained the University of Washington’s (UW) Transportation Services team in Motivational Interviewing (MI), a behavior change technique we have been using to reduce&nbcar reliance in cities. 'MI' is a person-centered style of communication which aims to empower people to find their own reasons for change.
