About the Book

The primary goal of this manual is to shape clinicians' communication approach to foster a working alliance with parents, teachers and other professionals working in the field of behavior analysis. MI is not just a patient-centered "mumbo jumbo" psychological approach, it is a patient (or caregiver) focused approach that aims to change behaviors by allowing patients to acknowledge their current needs and move them towards change. Through our discussion, we review current research on Parent Training (PT), outline barriers to parental involvement, discuss adaptive and maladaptive communication styles, present a behavior analytical conceptualization of motivation, introduce the concepts of MI and provide examples and exercises to practice the concepts. A major concept in these chapters is ambivalence and resistance. Resistance is understood as a direct byproduct of maladaptive parent-clinician communication styles that increases distress and leads to parental disengagement. To address resistance, we reveal a program focused on increasing clinicians' awareness of their communication style with caregivers (and other professionals) and explain ways to modify current interactions to decrease noncooperation and increase parents' motivation in the treatment process. Although this manual uses the term "parents" and "caregivers" interchangeably, the interventions are equally applicable to professionals working with teachers, supervisees and other staff as well as a host of others working in helping situations. From the first chapter to the last, we provide interactive "real world" exercises as well as a "MI toolbox" to equip clinicians with communication strategies to help them resolve parental ambivalence and facilitate parental engagement in treatment.
