Change/Motivational Interviewing Rachel Seems to

Rachel needs to be made aware of the small steps she needs to take to make big changes in her life, like becoming independent. Asking her why she did not avail herself of the internship program, why she does not seek to learn how to do more domestic duties in the hopes of being independent, and how she expects to function without transportation are all important questions to motivate her to take the next step towards her ultimate goal.

Three major goals for next session:

1. Learn how to perform one major life task (such as cooking a meal)


Learn to use public transportation

3. Go on one social event with a friend
