Motivational Interviewing (MI;W. R. Miller & S. Rollnick, 2002) is presented as a potentially effective counseling strategy for assisting traditionally aged college students in reducing their problematic, heavy alcohol use. Mi's congruence with two developmental theories—Self-Determination Theory (R. M. Ryan & E. L Deci, 2000) and Seven Vector Model (A.W. Checkering & L Reisser, 1993)—is explored. In addition to presenting a case illustration, recommendations, advantages, and limitations are discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved) (journal abstract)
