In this episode, Glenn and Sebastian talk to Dr. Claire Lane, a clinical psychologist at Swansea Bay University Health Board, UK. Dr. Lane talks about the complexities of working in a weight management service, how to establish safety and highlight strengths through engagement, the focusing process and blending MI with other therapies, and client-centered agenda setting.
