The significantly revised second edition of this unique practitioner guide features 65% new material and a new organizing structure. The authors show how to use motivational interviewing (MI) to have productive conversations about behavior change with adolescents and young adults in any clinical context. Noted for its clarity, the book includes extended case examples, sample dialogues, quick-reference tables, and “dos and don'ts.” It provides vital tools for helping young people open up about their struggles, explore alternatives, and make healthier choices around such concerns as substance use, smoking, anxiety, medication adherence, and obesity.

New to This Edition
  • More integrative and cohesive: every chapter weaves in diverse clinical issues, replacing the prior edition's population-specific chapters.
  • Chapters on MI in groups and involving caregivers in treatment.
  • Restructured around the current four-process model of MI, and proposes maintenance of change as a fifth process.
  • Incorporates the rapidly growing research base on MI with youth.
  • Reflects the ongoing refinement of the authors' training approach; includes skill-building activities at the end of each chapter.

This title is part of the Applications of Motivational Interviewing Series, edited by Stephen Rollnick, William R. Miller, and Theresa B. Moyers.
