"Motivational Interviewing's collaborative style and success with addiction treatment--especially compared to more conventional methods that emphasize confrontation, or at least directiveness--has made it a preferred approach in a range of helping professions. Even when the client is mandated (or, perhaps, especially when they are), we need a solid therapeutic alliance to make real progress. How do you move therapy forward when your client feels resistant to even being in the room? What if the client is a teen, and their presenting problems include substance use? In this new video, MI expert Sebastian Kaplan offers practical tools to help you manage challenging sessions with adolescent clients experiencing substance use--both issues related and seemingly unrelated to it. Here, you'll gain strategies for applying these skills in your own practice, and discover how MI can help you resist the understandable urge to advise or "fix" your clients. Kaplan outlines the key principles of MI, known as the "MI Spirit," and details each component alongside case vignettes. Covering OARS skills, the four MI processes, change and sustain talk, and "the righting reflex," Kaplan describes the method's collaborative, client-engaging nature. Then, four annotated sessions follow in which Kaplan and fellow MI trainer Ali Hall work with several teen clients. You'll see the method in action as the aforementioned skills are applied, with the result of deepening the working alliance, providing MI-compliant feedback, and evoking change talk. This video is invaluable for clinicians who want a primer on MI, effective strategies for adolescent therapy, or interventions for addiction and recovery. Be sure to take a look. By watching this video, you will: Get an overview of Motivational Interviewing (MI) and its application to adolescent substance use. Learn MI skills that support the therapeutic alliance and allow for client resistance. Discover helpful tools for working with your own internal responses to a client." - Supplied by publisher.
