Motivational Interviewing in Health Care
By

Rating
Much of health care today involves helping patients manage conditions whose outcomes can be greatly influenced by lifestyle or behaviour change. Written specifically for health care professionals, this concise book presents powerful tools to enhance communication with patients and guide them in making choices to improve their health, from weight loss, exercise, and smoking cessation, to medication adherence and safer sex practices. Engaging dialogues and vignettes bring to life the core skills of motivational interviewing (MI) in this book, and show how to incorporate this brief evidence-based approach into any health care setting. It features appendices that include MI training resources and publications on specific medical conditions.

Reviews

"I highly recommend this book for any practitioner dealing in health behavior change. In a conversational style with numerous helpful examples, the authors translate complex psychological concepts into easy-to-understand terms that will support and guide health care practitioners in improving their consultations with patients. The book is also a 'must' for the shelves of undergraduates and graduate students alike who are interested in motivational interviewing within the world of health care practice." - Judith Carpenter, registered dietitian, Derbyshire County Primary Care Trust, UK "Many of today's leading causes of death are significantly related to modifiable health behaviors. This book provides a critical approach for helping patients change their behavior. Motivational interviewing (MI) provides a new alternative to the outdated direct persuasion approach, bringing a breath of fresh air to the conversation between health care providers and those with chronic diseases like diabetes and obesity. Practical examples and exercises make this book a powerful tool for use in educating medical students, nurses, and other health care professionals about encouraging patients to make healthy choices." - Robert Gabbay, Executive Director, Penn State Diabetes and Obesity Institute, Pennsylvania State College of Medicine, Milton S.
