The definitive guide to motivational interviewing (MI) for health care practitioners has been completely revised to reflect important developments and make the approach even more accessible. When it comes to helping patients manage chronic and acute conditions and make healthier choices in such areas as medication adherence, smoking, diet, and preventive care, good advice alone is not enough. This indispensable book shows how to use MI techniques to transform conversations about change. Even the briefest clinical interaction can serve to build trust, clarify patients' goals as well as reasons for ambivalence, and guide them to take positive steps. Vivid sample dialogues, tips, and scripts illustrate ways to incorporate this evidence-based approach into diverse health care settings.

New to This Edition
  • Most of the book is entirely new.
  • Restructured around the current four-process model of MI (engaging, focusing, evoking, and planning).
  • Incorporates lessons learned from the authors' ongoing clinical practice and practitioner training workshops.
  • Chapters on advice-giving, brief consultations, merging MI with assessment, MI in groups, and making telehealth consultations more effective.
  • Additional practical features—extended case examples, “Try This” activities, and boxed reflections from practitioners in a range of contexts.

This title is part of the Applications of Motivational Interviewing Series, edited by Stephen Rollnick, William R. Miller, and Theresa B. Moyers.
