Are you struggling to help your clients change their self-destructive behaviors?
Does it seem like they've tried everything, but are still unable to change?
The key to eliciting change is to develop a complete understanding of the behavior — what triggers it, what rewards are associated with it, and what consequences can be expected as a result of the behavior.
In this free video, I'm going to show you how you can engage these clients, how you can help them understand what's behind these behaviors, and more importantly, how you can use this awareness to help them to change.
Enjoy the video,
