Finding Your Way to Change: How the Power of Motivational Interviewing Can Reveal What You Want and Help You Get There
"I know this change would be good for me, but I just can't seem to commit to it." Whether it's eating healthier, making a long-desired career change, or ending self-destructive patterns in relationships, old habits die hard. The good news is, it's perfectly normal to feel stuck--and with motivational interviewing (MI), you can understand what's keeping you there and how to break free. Allan Zuckoff and Bonnie Gorscak are MI experts who translate this proven counseling approach into powerful self-help strategies and practical tools. Readers learn how to deal with unhelpful pressure to change, both from others and from within; overcome self-judgment and shame; and build confidence for developing and carrying out a doable personal change plan. Vivid stories illustrate the techniques in action. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download more than 60 worksheets (and have the option to fill in forms on-screen before printing and/or saving).
