|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Psoriasis||Behavioral: Motivational interviewing||Phase 3|
A chronic condition such as psoriasis requires a high level of self- management and requires for many patients behaviour change to improve health outcome. Changing behaviour is a challenge that requires a commitment by the patient to implement successfully. Motivational interviewing is a patient centered directive counseling technique that focuses on assisting patients to identify their problems and involves exploring ambivalence in an empathic manner. It is a well-known method of counseling, and is considered to be a useful intervention strategy in the treatment of lifestyle problems.
This study is a randomized controlled trial using telephone motivational interviewing. The counseling intervention comprises 6 telephone calls during a 12 week period, after attending 3 weeks of supervised climate therapy on the Canary Islands

Motivational interviewing is a patient centered directive counselling technique that focuses on assisting patients to identify their problems and involves exploring ambivalence in an empathic manner. A key goal in motivational interviewing is to increase the importance of change from the client`s perspective. This is accomplished by using specific types of open ended questions, selective reflections and reflective listening.
