Past notice
Motivating behaviour change
a talk by Fiona Biddle

Very often clients go to see therapists with the intention of doing something they don’t currently do, or not do something that they do. 

However, it’s also common for their reasons for the change are flimsy, or not based on deeply held beliefs. After all, if they were strong enough, why would they need us?"

At the James Braid Society's February 2013 meting, Fiona Biddle provided a detaled explanation of some ideas from various motivational theories and described practical ways for therapiss to use these theories to enhance a client’s motivation to make the changes that they wish to make.
