Since the publication of Miller and Rollnick's classic Motivational Interviewing, MI has become hugely popular as a tool for facilitating many different kinds of positive behavior change. MI is increasingly being used to help individuals mobilize their energy, commitment, and personal resources for addressing a wide range of mental health concerns. This cutting-edge book brings together leading experts to describe MI applications in the treatment of anxiety, depression, PTSD, suicidal behavior, obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorders, gambling addictions, schizophrenia, and dual diagnoses. Also addressed are MI approaches in the criminal justice system. Each chapter provides a concise overview of the disorder or population under discussion; describes how MI has been integrated with standard treatment approaches; illustrates the nuts and bolts of intervention, using vivid clinical examples; and reviews the empirical evidence base.
This book is in the Applications of Motivational Interviewing series.

"This is the book I've been waiting for! It details encouraging results from the use of motivational interviewing (MI)--a brief intervention with well-documented effectiveness with substance abusers--for treating patients with a range of other conditions. Clinicians who want to enhance their therapeutic effectiveness should read this book and consider whether and how MI might enable them to better help patients achieve their therapeutic goals."--Peter E. Nathan, PhD, University of Iowa Foundation Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Public Health, University of Iowa
"This excellent book is essential reading for therapists and students interested in motivational interviewing (MI). Expert practitioners offer a step-by-step guide to MI with people who may have any of a wide range of mental health problems, and who hesitate to accept help. Valuable vignettes and therapist-patient dialogues illustrate how to manage various clinical scenarios with skill and sensitivity. The chapters also succinctly review MI research for each type of problem under consideration."--Isaac Marks, MD, FRCPsych, Professor Emeritus, King's College Institute of Psychiatry, University of London, UK
"Are any of your patients stuck? Read this book. Motivational interviewing has brought the crucial issue of motivation--particularly motivation for change--back to the center of treatment where it belongs. This wonderful book gives ways to work with ambivalence about change in treating people with many problems and disorders. It is easy to read and highly appropriate for beginners as well as experienced practitioners."--Leslie S. Greenberg, PhD, Department of Psychology, York University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
"A terrific book for all therapists who seek a positive, respectful, and collaborative approach for helping clients move toward positive change. Motivational interviewing (MI) represents a way of being with clients, rather than another school of therapy, making it a useful alternative or adjunct to other models when the going gets difficult."--Carol M. Anderson, PhD, Western Psychiatric Institute and University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
