Description

Our clients are individuals who differ widely in their challenges and aspirations for health and well-being. If we're trying to unlock their motivation, why would we ask them all the same boilerplate questions? Individual needs demand tailored solutions. Learn to elicit the most important information from clients through skilled interviewing techniques that establish trust, spark motivation and ignite success stories.

    I really enjoyed this video. Christopher McGrath explained the technique of motivational interviewing very well and made me rethink my initial interviews with my clients. I'll probably re-watch this to really make sure I have the process ingrained in me before I jump in.
