Talking to Change: An MI Podcast. Episode 53: Motivational Interviewing for Working with Children & Families, with Donald Forrester

In this episode, Glenn and Sebastian talk to Professor Donald Forrester, Cardiff University CASCADE Centre for Children’s Social Care, about the use of MI with children and families. Professor Forrester talks about what it means to be a “good social worker,” how to balance MI spirit with a child’s safety, recognizing the needs of a vulnerable parent, modeling good care in supervision, and teaching MI to parents so they can use it with their own kids. The episode ends with a role play exploring an allegation of child abuse and a debrief afterwards.
