David B. Rosengren, PhD, is a Research Scientist at the University of Washington's Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute, an MI consultant and trainer, and a clinical psychologist in private practice. His primary research and clinical interests are motivation, the process of change, and training methods. Dr. Rosengren has provided MI training since 1993, including serving as a master trainer for the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT). He has authored numerous book chapters and journal articles on MI-related topics.
"An outstanding contribution to the MI training field. Rosengren has synthesized the core components of MI and the many approaches for teaching it into one very useful workbook. Engaging, crisp, and approachable, the book presents self-training tools that are applicable to a wide range of practitioners, settings, and clients. This book will definitely not just sit on the shelf. Readers will want to revisit it time and time again to hone their MI skills and find new ideas for teaching the approach to others." - Steve Martino, Department of Psychiatry, Yale University School of Medicine, USA "Rather than blaming the client for lack of change, this book takes seriously the clinician's role in the change process. In a friendly, accessible format, the book shows how to skillfully guide clients toward healthy behavior change. Rosengren does a superb job of breaking down complex material. At each step, the book points out exactly why the clinician is choosing certain questions and statements. The follow-up exercises allow the reader to 'try out' the techniques and receive feedback. For those who are new to MI or who are already familiar with the approach, I highly recommend this book." - Scott Walters, University of Texas School of Public Health, USA "I highly recommend this book. There is widespread interest in MI and its burgeoning clinical applications. Rosengren provides clinicians with both essential theoretical understanding and practical tools for improving their implementation of MI." - G. Alan Marlatt, Department of Psychology and Director, Addictive Behaviors Research Center, University of Washington, USA
