Are you looking for hands-on examples and strategies on how to incorporate motivational interview techniques into your VR practices?
State vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies are continuing to adopt motivational interviewing as a technique for engaging with clients. This goal-oriented, client-centered counseling style makes exploring change less stressful and leads to more successful outcomes.
What we have learned from Motivational Interviewing is that how information is presented can affect how it is received. When relevant, new information should be presented in a neutral, nonjudgmental, and sensitive manner that empowers clients to make more informed decisions about quitting or changing a risky or problem behavior.
