Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) pulls from the practices of motivational interviewing (MI).
Through self-motivation, the client themselves feels empowered to make a change. This phenomenon is known as “intrinsic motivation” and works to implement “rolling with resistance”; which is a technique utilized by the Advanced Human Services, Inc staff to open the lines of communication with the client by responding in a neutral way to any possible resistance from the client’s side, rather than contradicting or correcting them. Feeling heard and reassured of their importance in the therapeutic process is something all our professional staff aims to deliver to the client. Creating a safe and peaceful environment for expression is our goal at Advanced Human Services, Inc. The synergy between client and professional staff is crucial to a healthy recovery. Which is why following the guidelines of Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) is at the crux of client interaction and plans for their wellbeing.
