Motivational Interviewing is a patient centred approach which strengthens the patient’s motivation for and movement toward a specific goal by exploring and resolving ambivalence (Hettema et al. 2005). In the scenario in my digital recording, for example: the patient’s goal is to cut down/stopping drinking alcohol. A Nurse’s empathic and collaborative approach to this conversation technique supports the eliciting and discovering of the patient’s personal reasons to change (Miller & Rollnick, 2012). Four guiding principles (R.U.L.E) were devised in order for effective Motivational Interviewing to occur; resist the righting reflex, understand and explore patient’s own motivations, listen with empathy and empower patient providing hope and encouragement
Triggers commonly cause clients to relapse and it is important for the development of self-advocacy. This advocacy can be developed by the transformation of thought through rigorous evaluation and understanding of thinking errors and cognitive distortions.

The program’s success comes from the implementation of CBT and a combination of other approaches. In alcohol and drug counseling, a client-centered approach has proven to be one of best practice.

These goals and objective could be things such as no longer being fearful or to no longer assume everyone is bad. This program will assist each person to accomplish those goals. We will help them all the way through their counseling and help encourage them to meet those goals or surpass them. Permitting the victims to be the one to set a number of the goals allows them to feel like they are in control of their future. The victim and we will be able to use these goals put in place to track their improvement and be certain they are succeeding.

I would also explain to the patient the importance of completing therapy in order to maintain her employment. Client stated that they have never actually considered stopping with medication or reassessing their pain care.
As social workers, it is important for us to work from a lens of the recovery model while doing case management. The recovery model, encourages clients to be actively involved in the development of their treatment plans and to help apply hope and self-determination to the client (Regehr, Glancy, 2009). This is often a different approach than is taken in medical settings. Often, it is reported that clients do not have much say in their course of treatment while they admitted to the hospital. On the contrary, the recovery model encourages the clients to realize their own strengths and building on them to create a road to recovery that is achievable for them (Regehr & Glancy, 2009).

The counsellor plans an intervention for the client as well as personalises the problem and goal. The client will be able to understand the path that he wants or needs to from the process of self-exploration. The counsellor summarised the issues and situation faced by the client and when the counsellor is assured that the client agrees with the summary given, appropriate goals and plans will be formulated for the intervention. To monitor the client’s progress of achieving his goals, specified goals which are set by the client are devised.
