"Miller and Rollnick, the founders and authors of Motivational Interviewing, stress that MI is not simply a technique to help people change but more a way of relating to others, an interpersonal style. This subtle but vital point is made throughout the latest volume, the most thourough guide to the subject yet. This third edition contains a large amount of updated material from earlier versions. Iy is excellently written and a genuine pleasure to read, being highly accessible for clinical practitioners and lay people alike. ... This book is essential reading for anyone in the business of helping people to change and will be considered an invaluable resource for many years to come." - Emmet Gomes, Addicition Today, March 2013 "A superb, readable guide to theory and practice. MI has fundamentally changed the way we think about working with less motivated clients, especially in today's healthcare climate, with its emphasis on evidence-based brief treatments. The four-phase framework introduced in this edition greatly simplifies the way that MI is delivered. Miller and Rollnick do a superb job of breaking down a complex process. At each step, readers see exactly why the provider is choosing certain questions or statements over others." - Scott T. Walters, PhD, School of Public Health, University of North Texas Health Science Center "The most complete explication of MI to date. Building on the explosion of MI research in the past decade, most of the material in this third edition is new, including compelling advances in understanding how MI influences the process of personal change. This book is destined to have an enormous impact on the field. It is a 'must-adopt' text for courses in psychology, counseling, social work, mental health, addictions, and healthcare more broadly." - Timothy J. O'Farrell, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
