It's easy to start feeling stuck or like you need to “win.” But the harder you push or pull, the greater the discord/resistance. You need a better way to communicate with ambivalent clients. Motivational Interviewing is that way. In this session, MI expert Melinda Marasch, LCSW, MINT, will show you how the evidence-based MI process works and ways you can apply it to make those tough conversations more productive, end the tug of war, and maximize opportunities for lasting change from within.
