Since the initial publication of this breakthrough work, motivational interviewing (MI) has been used by countless clinicians. Theory and methods have evolved apace, reflecting new knowledge on the process of behavior change, a growing body of outcome research, and the development of new applications within and beyond the addictions field. Extensively rewritten, this revised and expanded second edition now brings MI practitioners and trainees fully up to date. William R. Miller and Stephen Rollnick explain how to work through ambivalence to facilitate change, present detailed guidelines for using their approach, and reflect on the process of learning MI. Chapters contributed by other leading experts then address such special topics as MI and the stages of-change model, applications in medical, public health, and criminal justice settings, and using the approach with groups, couples, and adolescents.

- Publisher "In the ten years since the first edition of this landmark book was published, not only has the original book become a classic, but motivational interviewing (MI) has taken the world by storm. Today, counseling from a motivational perspective is prominent in fields as varied as substance abuse counseling, health care, social work, and even criminal justice fields. The publication of Motivational Interviewing: Preparing People for Change is thus a timely contribution to the field....the methods described gel extremely well with social work's strengths/empowerment perspective. I highly recommend this volume to the practitioner in the field and to social work educators who wish to grasp the essence of a method that integrates client-centered therapy with advice gicing and directive feedback. This text is highly readable and illuminated with case studies throughout."--Journal of Social Work Practice in the Addictions "'Like the first edition it is very clearly written, often a joy to read. Motivational Interviewing" remains a classic for mental health trainees in general....I would particularly recommend it to psychiatry residents, medical students, early career psychiatrists if they have missed previous exposure to it, and those working with patients with addictive disorders."--William M. Greenberg, M.D., New Jersey Psychiatrist "...explores the topic in detail, wowing the reader through numerous clear descriptions of how to communicate with clients to increase their motivation to change and to decrease any resistance to it....Motivational Interviewing is very thorough, offering specific examples in an easy-to-read-and-understand manner. It is very well organized and the boxes containing concise practice tips are helpful. This book would benefit the library of any counsellor, as it addresses how to help others change. It would be excellent for those involved in family preservation programs too, where the family is often ready to change but struggles or presents with some resistance.'"--Child & Family "More than ten years have passed since Miller and Rollnick introduced the concept of Motivational Interviewing (MI) as an effective counselling style for addicts. Since then, MI has steadily gained support among counsellors, has spread to new patient groups and new treatment settings, and its effectiveness has been tested empirically. The new edition of Motivational Interviewing contains all you need to know about these new developments while still giving an accessible, easily readable introduction to the theory and practice of MI....the second edition of Miller & Rollnick's Motivational Interviewingshould be valuable for everyone who works with sceptical, ambivalent clients. It should be especially valuable for those working in the addiction field. Readers who already own the first edition might still want to get the new book because, though the chapters about practicing MI are rather similar to those in the old edition, the conceptual issues and possible adaptations of MI are now dealt with in more depth."--Metapsychology Online Book Reviews "This book is a well-written and cohesive, and is appropriate for any practitioner or student with an interest in facilitating behavioral change, even those readers with limited counseling knowledge. It contains enough new material to interest first edition readers, who may wish to use it as a companion, rather than as a replacement, volume. Finally, researchers interested in MI should appreciate its growing empirical base and wealth of research suggestions."--Journal of Studies on Alcohol
