"In this video interview, Scott Miller discusses the evolution of Motivational Interviewing, the spirit of MI, and specific techniques for clinicians. Here, the founder of Motivational Interviewing outlines the need to honor a client's autonomy, draw forth the inherent desire to change, and take a collaborative, rather than confrontational, approach. Miller addresses how to deal with clients' resistance and denial, particularly when the clinician feels impatient and frustrated, and talks about ways to build clients' confidence to enhance motivation. You will learn about Motivational Interviewing's approach to change, including specific techniques used to help people change; identify when MI is and is not recommended; and explain how a clinician employing Motivational Interviewing techniques would respond to resistance. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health professions." - Supplied by publisher.
