Description

How do you motivate someone to change a pattern of behaviour? This is an issue faced daily by professionals working in healthcare and criminal justice systems. Motivational interviewing is a style of communication developed for working with substance abuse, but found to be effective for work with a variety of people who are struggling with the idea of behaviour change. This workbook is a complete guide to the motivational approach for any professional who needs to help others to change.
