It is no exaggeration to say that motivational interviewing (MI) has transformed the way doctors engage with patients, families, and colleagues alike. MI is among the most powerful tools available to promote behavior change in patients. In an age of chronic diseases (diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, obesity), behavior change is no longer limited to substance use or the field of psychiatry - maladaptive choices and behaviors that negatively impact health outcomes are rampant. There is an explosion of research projects using MI or adaptations of MI in the behavioral health medicine field in the past decade. Hospitalizations can't make people change. How marvelous is it that an evidence-based health behavior change approach (MI) can help people change the outcomes of their illnesses and the course of their lives. This therapeutic approach is not a form of psychotherapy and is not the stuff of cobwebs and old leather couches. MI is readily integrated into regular ward rounds and office visits and provides an effective and efficient approach to patients clinical encounters. Written by experts in the field and medical trainees across medicine, this is the first MI guide of its kind. Its explores how MI enhances contact with patients from every level of training, following an accessible, succinct approach. This book covers the application of MI method and skills into practice and also includes numerous clinical scenarios, personal reflections and online animated clinical vignettes (video clips) that share the challenges and successes the authors have focused.

It is no exaggeration to say that motivational interviewing (MI) has transformed the culture of clinical practice and the way healthcare practitioners and researchers understand behavior change. MI, as an empirically supported therapeutic approach, has grown all across prevention, intervention, treatment, and research settings. Nowhere is the need to target behavior change more urgent than in people living with HIV. MI is a collaborative, person-centered clinical method that fosters a constructive practitioner-patient relationship and facilitates behavior change through eliciting and strengthening motivation for change. MI can be implemented as a stand-alone brief intervention, a prelude to treatment, or a platform for ongoing care. While MI has been shown to promote behavior change in a variety of healthcare settings and health behaviors in diverse cultures and communities, from substance use, safer sex, physical activity, medication and treatment adherence, more recently there has been an explosion of research that tailors MI to HIV care. This original and compassionate book, Motivational Interviewing in HIV Care, brings together researchers and healthcare practitioners who have considerably contributed to the science and clinical practice of MI in HIV care. It provides current, accessible review of the current status of the MI interventions, their clinical applications, and the evidence that supports them. Motivational Interviewing in HIV Care is essential reading for workers in the field of HIV, who will benefit from up-to-date research reviews and practical applications of MI across the continuum of HIV care.

This is an up-to-date, well-documented presentation of the spirit and method of MI, integrating it with behavioral theory and research. Practical exercises and examples support learning of how to apply MI in everyday conversations about change with parents, teachers, students, families, and school-based teams." William R. Miller, PhD The University of New Mexico One of the greatest challenges for mental health and other professionals in school settings is to get students, families, and staff willing to partake of and engaged in their services. This is the first book on applying motivational interviewing (MI)-a powerful, evidence-based technique for facilitating behavior change-throughout the school environment to help psychologists, counselors and other school-based professionals to improve the effectiveness of their practice. Based on encouraging research on the value of MI in K-12 settings, this practical book explains the basic elements of MI theory and demonstrates, step-by-step, how the four-stage process of engaging, focusing, evoking, and planning can be used with the families of students who need psychological or counseling services, teachers who need consultation and support to improve classroom management, and the students themselves. The book discusses barriers to readiness to change and describes how to foster engagement and compliance with school services to increase the likelihood that positive change will occur. It also describes how MI can be used to increase the effectiveness of inter-professional teams in school settings, along with ways in which MI can be integrated into and build support for already established programs. Richly illustrated with examples of using MI as a strategy for promoting everyday conversations about change--the nucleus of MI practice--the book also includes case studies and sample handouts for mental health professionals, students, family members, and teachers.
