Here is an excerpt from the most recent UNC CFAR Motivational Interviewing Blog:

“However, ‘discord’ can sometimes be caused by our mood or approach. Perhaps like any other human being, we may feel tired, stressed, overwhelmed, or distracted, and may bring some of these experiences into our sessions with our clients. It may also be that we, as clinicians, are working harder than the client, wanting change to occur badly for the client, and/or we are trying to move the client along faster than they are ready.” —Motivational Interviewing Questions: Responding to Discord
