It was the worst session of my life… In the early years of my career, before I helped develop Motivational Interviewing, I was put in charge of a group of alcoholics. One evening, a notoriously resistant client walked in and sat down. He said nothing.
At the end of the session he left, went home, and shot his wife and himself in front of their two children.
I’m Stephen Rollnick, co-founder of Motivational Interviewing (MI). I’ve asked myself many serious questions about how we can truly care for our clients, especially those that challenge our skills as a therapist and make us feel as if we are failing them.
Those questions led to new treatment strategies that became the foundation of Motivational Interviewing: an evidence-based practice that enables us to escape the pattern of struggling with clients and instead evoke their own motivation to change.
Now I want to teach you step by step how to integrate Motivational Interviewing with your current treatment strategies and increase your positive outcomes.

Great product. I suggest listening to these many times because they have been well worth the investment. The counter tactics the author suggests, are questionable because they are contrary to win/win. Otherwise they are well worth the investment if you ar
