Helping clients to help themselves is an important part of every counsellor's job.

With this video, you'll learn how to:

  • enhance your client's commitment to change, using a variety of motivational interviewing techniques, and encourage your client to maintain that commitment
  • help your client set realistic goals, recognize the costs and benefits of change and deal with high-risk situations
  • use tools to give clients feedback about their past drinking patterns, related health risks, financial costs and caloric intake, and how their drinking compares to national patterns
  • give clients "homework" to help them identify high-risk situations and learn new behaviours.
