This authoritative guide, now significantly revised and expanded, has given tens of thousands of clinicians proven tools for helping clients resolve ambivalence and mobilize their energy, commitment, and personal resources for change. Leading experts describe ways to combine motivational interviewing (MI) with other treatments for a wide range of psychological problems, including depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder, and others. Chapters illustrate the nuts and bolts of intervention, using vivid clinical examples, and review the empirical evidence base. Contributors show how to tailor MI to each population's needs, whether used as a pretreatment or throughout the course of therapy.

“Simply the best current and comprehensive work in this area. I truly enjoyed reading—and learned from—this volume. Key contributors cover conceptual bases, research, and application issues with equal assurance. This book should be on the shelf of every clinician interested in MI, as well as graduate students and trainees.”
—Keith S. Dobson, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Calgary, Canada
“The second edition reflects contemporary advances in the practice of MI, as well as the solid science supporting its efficacy across a wide range of clinical problems. The contributors are outstanding practitioner-researchers. This is an excellent text for graduate courses aimed at conveying skills in research-supported psychotherapies, as is increasingly being mandated by professional guidelines. I highly recommend this book for graduate students and established practitioners alike.”
