Increasing motivation to change is a key skill all therapists must practice in their offices on a daily basis. Many clients are only half motivated to change. They want to change but they also want to go on doing what they are doing, for example, engaging in addictive behaviors, depressing themselves, and procrastinating. This workshop will focus on a variety of MI techniques designed to motivate clients to make important changes in their lives
- Demonstrate how to integrate Motivational Interviewing with REBT/CBT.
