Issue 44: The Trap of using MI to ‘Fix’ our Clients
This Issue is taking time out from our current exploration of the methodology or ‘mind-set’ of Motivational Interviewing. Inspired by recent discussions with colleagues in Ireland, this editorial offers some thoughts about the ‘heart-set’ of MI. In particular our practice of acceptance of our client’s autonomy: why respecting this is vital and challenging and what it can feel like when we lose our way with embodying this attribute. I hope you find this month’s editorial supportive and thought provoking.
