How can clinicians and other professionals motivate adult clients who have been mandated into treatment? Most workbooks explore the techniques for treatment without providing a framework for engaging clients in the face of the fact that most clients feel ambivalent about entering treatment. Prescott and Wilson deal directly with motivation, setting the stage for the preparatory stages of change. Once a client moves into treatment, this workbook provides the concrete steps for a client to examine and address their barriers to effective treatment and ultimately, positive change.
