Client motivation is key to the success of psychotherapy. Dr. Bernstein bases his approach on the concepts and tools developed by motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, and Prochaska’s “stages of change” model. Packed with case examples; video and film demonstrations; discussion and practice, the workshop is engaging, informative, and immediately useful to clinicians at any skill level.
