Motivational Interviewing: Preparing People for Change


Product Description

Motivational interviewing, a non-authoritarian approach to helping people free up their own motivations and resources, is a powerful technique for overcoming ambivalence and helping clients to get 'unstuck'. This book backgrounds the theory, outlines the practice of motivational interviewing, and brings together contributions from international experts who describe their work. Case examples illuminate key points and demonstrate the efficacy of the approach in action. Subsequent chapters address the process of learning Motivational Interviewing - including personal reflections from the authors - and explore the implications for clinical training. The new third edition reflects major advances in understanding and teaching Motivational Interviewing and additional case examples and counselling situations. One of our best sellers.
