Responding to Change Talk in a Manner that Strengthens it; Ambivalent clients often offer statements which include a combination of Change Talk and Sustain Talk. These statements appear as “yes…but…”. Sometimes there is a tendency to focus on the “but” part of the statement versus the Change Talk (yes) part. In this session we will focus on responding to these types of statements in a manner that supports change and softens not changing. This session will be a combination of concept, discussion, and practice.
