Motivational Interviewing in Health Care
Helping Patients Change Behavior
Stephen Rollnick, William R. Miller, Christopher C. Butler
The definitive guide to motivational interviewing (MI) for health care practitioners has been completely revised to reflect important developments and make the approach even more accessible. When it comes to helping patients manage chronic and acute conditions and make healthier choices in such areas as medication adherence, smoking, diet, and preventive care, good advice alone is not enough. This indispensable book shows how to use MI techniques to transform conversations about change. Even the briefest clinical interaction can serve to build trust, clarify patients' goals as well as reasons for ambivalence, and guide them to take positive steps. Vivid sample dialogues, tips, and scripts illustrate ways to incorporate this evidence-based approach into diverse health care settings.
