Enhancing Motivation for Change in Substance Abuse Treatment: Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) 35: Executive Summary and Recommendations

About the Course:

The primary purpose of this TIP is to link research to practice by providing clear applications of motivational approaches in clinical practice and treatment programs. This TIP also seeks to shift the conception of client motivation for change toward a view that empowers the treatment provider to elicit motivation. These approaches may be especially beneficial to particular populations (e.g., court-mandated offenders) with a low motivation for change. This course covers the Executive Summary of this TIP. It precedes Chapter 1 and offers an overview of the entire TIP.
