What People Are Saying:

“Mr. Closson hits the nail on the head. This is a fantastic example of how to approach law enforcement as a whole. This book truly applies to all facets of law enforcement and beyond.”

C. Sanford

“A great book on a technique/concept, while becoming common place in the counseling field, has great application to the arena of law enforcement, probation, and/or corrections. This is a must read for any officer familiar with verbal judo, community policing, drug courts, etc. David has captured many of the prominent concepts of motivational interviewing, and provides examples from his time as a campus police officer at Eastern Illinois University!”

Eric Davidson

“I really enjoyed the book. I was utilizing parts of M.I. and didn't even realize it until I read the book. Now, I can evaluate the ways that I was using it before and expand on that to make my interactions with students a lot more positive and effective.”

Officer Ryan Snow, D.R.E

“By engaging with students using the motivational interviewing techniques as an officer on our campus, Dave effectively connected with and positively impacted students in the various situations that he encountered. He represented the campus strongly by practicing these student-centered interactions he now describes in his book, and as an at-the-time live in housing staff member, the partnership that was able to be developed through these interactions was beyond appreciated! His past experiences, including serving as an officer offers great perspective to implementing motivational interviewing and putting what he practiced into training initiatives for others to benefit from.”
