Motivational Interviewing (MI), offers powerful tools for helping social work clients draw on their strengths to make desired changes in their lives. This reader-friendly book introduces practitioners to MI and demonstrates how to integrate this evidence-based method into direct practice. Melinda Hohman and her associates describe innovative applications for diverse clients and practice areas, including substance abuse treatment, mental health, child welfare, community organizing, and others. Extensive sample dialogues illustrate MI skills in action with individuals and groups. The book also presents best practices for MI training, teaching and agency-wide integration.

Hohman and colleagues offer detailed transcripts and clinical vignettes that break down the Motivational Interviewing (MI), process into discrete, readily learned bytes. Seasoned practitioners and students in advanced courses on social work practice, addictions treatment, and health and mental health social work will benefit from learning how MI principles and techniques can be applied to address the real-world challenges of common clinical scenarios.
