The issues discussed in this home-study will help the clinical supervisor educate and guide staff in rethinking the concept of motivation.  Motivation is not seen as static but as dynamic.  This home-study shows how substance abuse treatment staff can influence change by developing a therapeutic relationship that respects and builds on the client’s autonomy and, at the same time, makes the treatment clinician a partner in the change process.  Supervisors will be able to describe different motivational interventions that can be used for all stages of the change process.
