Reviews

"Wagner and Ingersoll do a masterful job of showing how to integrate the spirit, strategies, and concepts of MI into group work in a consistent and credible manner. They describe in detail how to deal with the needs and perspectives of multiple group members while promoting the process of change for both individuals and the group. The book is filled with practical suggestions, scientific studies, and the rich experiences of pioneering practitioners who are integrating MI into different types of groups. The breadth and depth of the coverage is impressive, and the practical examples of interactions very helpful. This book should be required reading for anyone considering doing MI in groups."--Carlo C. DiClemente, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology (Emeritus), University of Maryland, Baltimore County

"Wagner and Ingersoll succeed in answering a question that practitioners of all stripes have been asking for 20 years: 'How do we do MI in groups?' Bringing to bear their talents as researchers, practitioners, and trainers, the authors have woven a tapestry of art and science. This is a soup-to-nuts guide on how to start and run different types of MI groups, including a trove of advice from the contributing authors about applications for specific populations. A welcome addition to the MI literature."--David B. Rosengren, PhD, Prevention Research Institute, Lexington, Kentucky; member, Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers

"This important book breaks new ground by comprehensively extending MI to group psychotherapy. It is particularly strong in its detailed suggestions about how to conduct MI groups, along with its interesting and informative case studies. Experienced and novice group therapists and MI practitioners can learn a great deal from this book."--Hal Arkowitz, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Arizona; member, Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers

"Wagner and Ingersoll are to be commended for providing this engaging, relevant, and comprehensive book. Including chapters by other well-recognized experts, the authors put forth evidence-based therapeutic recommendations and identify important considerations for MI group practice. The book offers specific guidelines for developing groups for a variety of target populations. As a trainer of group therapy, I was particularly impressed with the depth of group practice facilitation skills communicated; this is rare to find."--Rebecca R. MacNair-Semands, PhD, Senior Associate Director, Counseling Center, University of North Carolina at Charlotte

"MI is about the therapist's attempts to mirror the client's own goals and desires, so that self-initiated change can begin. This book introduces a new kind of social mirroring for MI: the group setting. Through an insightful sequence of chapters, the book shows how peer interactions can assist in the change process. There are potential pitfalls--for example, group members might argue with rather than roll with each other's sticking points--but, fortunately, the book provides much practical information about how to focus and shape the group discourse for maximum utility. A rich blend of psychological insights is the result."--Kennon M. Sheldon, PhD, Department of Psychological Sciences, University of Missouri
