Motivational Interviewing (MI) continues to gain momentum as a powerful tool in the treatment of a wide range of psychological problems. This authoritative guide has helped thousands of clinicians work with clients to resolve ambivalence and mobilize their energy, commitment, and personal resources for change. Leading experts present state-of-art MI strategies tailored to particular clinical contexts. Extensively revised to incorporate the latest MI concepts, applications, and research, the second edition features numerous new chapters and authors. New topics include domestic violence, comorbid posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and substance use disorders, smoking cessation with adolescents, addictions, and transdiagnostic treatment.
Following an introductory overview of MI, chapters focus on specific frequently encountered clinical disorders. Contributors discuss how they have used MI either as a pretreatment or throughout the course of treatment for anxiety, depression, PTSD, suicidal behavior, obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorders, gambling addictions, schizophrenia, and other disorders. for Each chapter provides a rationale for using MI, demonstrates how it has been integrated with other therapeutic approaches, and describes challenges and potential solutions in implementation with the population under discussion. Extensive session transcripts and vignettes bring to life both the underlying spirit of MI and the use of specific techniques.
This practical, accessible book belongs on the desks of mental health professionals in any setting, including clinical psychologists, clinical social workers, professional mental health counselors, addiction specialists, marriage and family therapists, etc.
