THE OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY WERE: 1) To assess the pre test level of motivation for a change among alcohol dependence clients in experimental group and control group. 2) To find out the effectiveness of motivational interviewing technique on motivation for a change among experimental group and control group of alcohol dependence clients. 3) To compare the pre test and post test level of motivation for a change among alcohol dependence clients in experimental group. 4) To associate the post test level of motivation for a change among alcohol dependence clients in experimental group and control group with their selected demographic variables. THE FOLLOWING HYPOTHESES WERE SET FOR THE STUDY: All hypotheses were tested at 0.05 levels. H1: The mean post test level of motivation for a change among alcohol dependence clients in experimental group was higher than their mean post test level of motivation for a change in Control group. H2: The mean post test level of motivation for a change among alcohol dependence clients was higher than their mean pre test level of motivation for a change in experimental group. H3: There was a significant association between the post test level of motivation for a change in experimental group and control group with their selected demographic variables. The study was based on Imogene King’s Goal Attainment Model. The quantitative approach was used. The study was conducted in Madhu Adimaigal Maruvaalvu Maiyam in Nagercoil. The designs adopted for the study were quasi experimental with pre and post test control group design to evaluate the effect of motivational interviewing technique on motivation for a change. Convenient sampling was used to select 60 alcohol dependence clients for experimental and control group. The data collection tools developed for generating the necessary data by using a likerts scale to assess the effectiveness on motivation for a change. The content validity of the tools was established by five clinical experts. The motivational interviewing technique on motivation for a change was validated by clinical experts. Pilot study was conducted to find out the feasibility of the study and to plan for data analysis. Data collection was done and the data obtained were analyses in terms of both descriptive and inferential statistics. THE SIGNIFICANT FINDINGS OF THE STUDY WERE: 1. The mean post test level of motivation for a change among alcohol dependence clients in experimental group was higher than their mean post test level of motivation for a change in control group at p<0.05 level (t=2.91). 2. The mean post test level of motivation for a change among alcohol dependence clients was higher than their mean pre test level of motivation for a change in experimental group at p<0.05 level (t=3.64). 3. There was no significant association between the post test level of motivation for a change in experimental group and control group with their selected demographic variables at p< 0.05levels. ON THE BASIS OF THE FINDINGS OF THE STUDY IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT, 1. A similar study can be conducted by increasing the sample size. 2. A study can be conducted on other problems of alcohol dependence clients. 3. A study can be performed by developing a self-instructional module which enables the care givers to become aware of motivational interviewing technique and its benefits. 4. A further study can be conducted to assess the knowledge, attitude and practice of nursing personnel in motivational interviewing technique among alcohol dependence clients. RECOMMENDATION BASED ON THE SUGGESTIONS OF THE STUDY SUBJECTS: 1. The nursing person should develop in-depth knowledge about the motivational problems of alcohol dependence clients. 2. Certification programs for training in motivational interviewing technique for health personnel should be started in hospitals. 3. Staff development programs for imparting education and training regarding motivational interviewing technique.
