    I would like to attend a workshop. I live in Orange County. Do you have any workshops in the next month or two?

    I am a big fan of Motivational Interviewing. Although I am now retired, I was the director of an agency that served people who were homeless. Many of them struggled with mental health issues and substance abuse (and sometimes both). We used MI to help them motivate themselves to make the changes they wanted to see in their life. It also supported staff as they worked with people who had often been seen as “non compliant” by the standard mental health/substance abuse system.

    I can also recommend Changing for Good, by Prochaska, Norcross, and DiClemente, which is based on Motivational Interviewing and the concept of stages of change. It is written for the layperson.
