Issue 60: Motivational Interviewing as a Base

SUMMER 2021/22

In this issue I share a chapter from my MINT colleague Helen Mentha’s wonderful little book ‘Someone Good to Talk To: Reflections on Motivational Interviewing in Practice ‘.

Helen dedicates her book:
‘For everyone who gave up on the dream of owning a Ferrari and chose to support other people instead’
Helen shares her disarming wisdom with a very unassuming touch and a good dose of funny bone.
I highly recommend Helen’s book for affirming your MI practice in quick reads that feel like a long cool drinks when the challenges of change have you parched. Read on to sample some of Helen’s thoughts and meet Henry, the best doggy eva (in Melbourne that is :-)).
