Building Motivational Interviewing Skills

New or Used: $72.00
Developing expertise in motivational interviewing (MI) takes practice, which is exactly the point of this engaging, user-friendly workbook. The volume is packed with real-world examples from a range of clinical settings, as well as sample interactions and hands-on learning activities. The author is an experienced MI researcher, clinician, and trainer who facilitates learning with quizzes, experiential exercises, and reproducible worksheets. The reader learns step by step how to practice core MI skills: raising the importance of behavior change, fostering the client's confidence, resolving ambivalence, solidifying commitment to change, and negotiating a change plan. The utility of the book is enhanced by the large-size format and lay-flat binding. The book shows how to navigate each session using microskills that many clinicians already know: open-ended questions, affirmations, reflective listening, and summaries, or OARS for short. This book is in the Applications of Motivational Interviewing series.

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
