This book is written specifically for healthcare professionals. It presents powerful tools to enhance communication with patients and guide them in making choices to improve their health—from weight loss, exercise, and smoking cessation to medication adherence and safer sex practices. Engaging dialogues and vignettes bring to life the core skills of motivational interviewing (MI) and show how to incorporate this brief evidence-based approach into any healthcare setting. Appendices include MI training resources and publications on specific medical conditions.
