[...] This book is an essential for any practitioner who is learning MI, as well as more experienced MI practitioners who continue to evaluate and learn from their own practice. * Claire Lane, PhD, ClinPsyD, Clinical Psychologist, Specialist Weight Management Service, Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, UK, and The Family Psychologist, Worcestershire, UK * This remarkable and easily accessible volume is destined to become a well-thumbed reference on the desks of counselors and clinical researchers alike. While it comprehensively summarizes the knowledge base surrounding MI, it even more uniquely pursues, in a very systematic and effective manner, the actual application of the principles and concepts of MI in clinical practice. It is rare to come across a volume that so carefully and adeptly communicates why and how to apply MI in a wide range of therapy scenarios. * Gerard J. Connors, PhD, Senior Research Scientist, Research Institute on Addictions, University at Buffalo * This is a great sourcebook for practitioners interested in learning about the spirit and skills of MI. The authors have made creative use of case illustrations and vignettes in demonstrating clinical challenges encountered in effectively applying MI strategies with diverse clients. The book serves as an added resource for individuals undergoing MI training in skill-building workshops. * Allen Zweben, PhD, Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Research and Professor, School of Social Work, Columbia University * Written for the practicing clinician, this volume reflects an impressive integration of clinical experience and supporting evidence for enhancing client motivation to change. Of particular importance is that the authors are very much in touch with clinical reality and offer invaluable guidelines for overcoming motivational problems that can interfere with therapeutic change. * Marvin R. Goldfried, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Stony Brook University, and Past-President, Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration (SEPI) *
