Motivational Interviewing and Gestalt Theory

300 words

Identify one of the family members from the Campbell Family Case Study that you will be engaging in mandated therapy and use Gestalt techniques and Motivational Interviewing techniques to describe how you would work with this client. Because this is a mandated therapy session, you can assume this will be a hostile client who is not interested in being in therapy; additionally, the client has a lot of anger, frustration, and irritability that accompanies him or her to therapy. Please use evidence-based interventions from the Gestalt therapy and motivational interviewing skills to effectively work with this client.
