What People Are Saying...

“The coaching aspects of this video are extremely impressive; Cathy Cole has an excellent way of showing you how to stop and look at your work, and candidly evaluates her own counseling techniques. She shows different strategies and ably demonstrates the dynamic tension that is consistent with Motivational Interviewing. This is a video you will watch over and over because it is rich with material on the disciplines of this evidence-based practice.”

—Stephen R. Andrew, LCSW, LADC, Trainer/Consultant, Co-Author Game Plan: A Man's Guide to Achieving Emotional Fitness

“This is a comprehensive and up-to-date distillation of the essential elements of MI with helpful demonstration clips and interactive exercises. Cathy Cole’s commentary is lively, insightful and practical. These videos are an indispensable resource for anyone interested in learning about MI for the first time or enhancing their existing knowledge of this powerful approach to helping others.”

—Tim Godden, MSW, Advanced Practice Clinician, Toronto, Canada

“I used these exercises in a recent MI training for medical students, and the response from the students was overwhelmingly positive. Although the training group was very new to MI and had only participated in about 5 hours of training at the time I introduced these practice exercises, they felt confident shouting out responses each time the video was paused. In addition, these exercises appeared to deepen their understanding of MI concepts and techniques.”

—Julie Schumacher, PhD, Reviewed in Motivational Interviewing: Training, Research, Implementation, and Practice
