By ambivalence we mean ‘having strong feelings in opposing directions’. For example, a patient with harmful drinking may realise that his drinking has started creating problems in his life and he should change; and at the same time he may also have a strong desire to continue drinking. Helping a patient to resolve such opposing feelings is a very important step in developing his ‘motivation to change’.
