What strategies can a     counselor utilize to help clients commit to change?

Chapter 11 in the textbook emphasizes the importance of hope and   possibility in the counseling process. Clients come into counseling   having tried many different solutions that have failed. In many cases,   they are discouraged and hopeless about resolving their problems in a   way that creates a better life.

In some cases, clients face significant barriers of physical   disability or illness, histories of trauma, occupational   disadvantages, or addictions. Throughout the counseling process the   counselor attempts to create hope.
