About the Course:
Motivational interviewing (MI) is an effective evidence-based approach to overcoming the ambivalence that keeps many people from making desired changes in their lives, even after seeking or being referred to professional treatment. Extensively rewritten, this revised and expanded second edition applies MI to the challenges of change within and beyond the addictions field. It incorporates emerging knowledge of the process of behavior change, a growing body of outcome reserach, and discussions of novel applications. It is essential reading for any-one wishing to help clients get “unstuck” and free up their own resources for change.
