Publisher's Summary

Now in a fully rewritten fourth edition, this is the authoritative presentation of motivational interviewing (MI), the powerful approach to facilitating change. It has been updated and streamlined to be even more user-friendly as a practitioner guide and course text. MI originators William R. Miller and Stephen Rollnick elucidate the four tasks of MI—engaging, focusing, evoking, and planning—and vividly demonstrate what they look like in action. A wealth of vignettes and interview examples (engagingly read by multiple narrators) illustrate the dos and don'ts of successful implementation in diverse contexts. The book reviews the evidence base for the approach and covers ways to assess the quality of MI. Virtually a new book, the fourth edition addresses the breadth of MI applications, not only in counseling and psychotherapy, but also in health care, education, coaching, management, and other contexts. The companion website provides reflection questions, annotated case material, and additional helpful resources. This title is in the Applications of Motivational Interviewing series, edited by Stephen Rollnick, William R. Miller, and Theresa B. Moyers.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"Miller and Rollnick masterfully guide us through the story of how MI has developed over four decades and bring its sophisticated simplicity to life in a way that stimulates the mind, touches the heart, and invites best practice. This text will remain the favorite companion for all professional helpers who want to weave MI into what they do. The fourth edition has an increased emphasis on growth, in addition to change, underscoring the importance of supporting persistence and maintenance of change. This book is very useful for any graduate-level curricula that focus on behavior change and/or psychotherapy skills."--Steve Martino, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Yale University School of Medicine; member, Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers

"The fourth edition of Motivational Interviewing is an incredibly helpful resource for those in the helping professions and those training graduate students in health care, education, or psychology. It contains much of value for novice and advanced MI users. Transcripts of flowing conversations highlight the innovative ways that MI supports people to change and grow."--Wendy M. Reinke, PhD, Department of Educational, School, and Counseling Psychology, and Missouri Prevention Science Institute, University of Missouri–Columbia

"The fourth edition of this go-to text is like a home-cooked meal served up with all your favorites, but with a healthy dose of new concepts, skills, and upgraded terminology. Miller and Rollnick bring their trademark rigor and humility to this compelling refresh of the MI ‘bible.’ Replete with poignant clinical examples, the book strikes a perfect balance of the conceptual and practical. The new 'Personal Perspective' and 'For Therapists' features woven into each chapter work exceedingly well. The fourth edition is yet again a 'must read' for practitioners and a superb text for any MI-related course--I will use it in mine."--Kenneth Resnicow, PhD, Irwin M. Rosenstock Collegiate Professor of Public Health, University of Michigan
