  • assessing the client's readiness through the transtheoretical model of behaviour change

  • utilising practical strategies to encourage conversation and deal with a client’s resistance in a constructive and positive way

  • — utilising motivational interviewing skills to explore and resolve a client’s ambivalence

  • —putting it into practice (working from a case study)
