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.

This workshop translates the idea of “strength-based treatment” into concrete, easily digestible concepts and skills. You will learn how to engage and activate clients to make change, whether they are new to therapy or “stuck” in treatment.
