“More than twenty years have passed since Miller (1983) first introduced the concept of Motivational Interviewing (MI) as an effective counseling style for clients presenting with problems related to alcohol use. Since then, Miller and Rollnick (1991) have demonstrated the efficiency of MI across a number of settings and populations. Clients seeking career services are also likely to benefit from an approach incorporating principles of MI. This presentation will focus on specific strategies and techniques career counselors can utilize to facilitate change, positive decision making, and overall career development for all clients across the lifespan.”
~ Webinar Presenter
