Help Your Clients Achieve Their Goals with Motivational Interviewing

You are invested in your client's success and well-being. You know what they need to do and you know how they can do it.


Why is this individual still stuck? More importantly, how can you help?

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based approach for connecting with a person, exploring the possibility of change, and enhancing an individual's motivation to define and achieve their own version of "even better yet." 

This person-centered style of communicating addresses ambivalence about a specific behavior change. It is appropriate for use in many settings in which the well-being of the client, patient, or supervisee is prioritized.

Participant Feedback

Margaret after a virtual training entitled, "A Taste of Motivational Interviewing in the Helping Professions"

July 2021

“I attended the motivational session tonight. That was the best I have ever attended before...Elizabeth, kudos. You are a role model for sure. I would love to hear and learn more from you.”



I. MI and Leadership

Leading effectively can be challenging. Dr. Jenkins is a co-author of two books that examine the technical and relational aspects of MI in effective leadership. Concrete strategies are provided to maximize employee motivation, sense of ownership for the product, and creativity.



II. MI and Parenting

Have you ever asked your child to do something important, but after sharing your brilliant, clear reasoning, you realized that your child didn’t listen to a word of it? Most of us want a positive relationship with our kids AND we want them to tune in so they can be responsible, safe, and independent. We really can have both.

Happy parents, happy children. You don't have to choose.
