Motivational Interviewing in the Treatment of Psychological Problems

Arkowitz, H., Westra, H.A., Miller, W.R., & Rollnick, S. (Eds). (2008). Motivational Interviewing in the Treatment of Psychological Problems. New York: Guilford Press.

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is increasingly being used to help individuals mobilize their energy, commitment, and personal resources for addressing a wide range of mental health concerns. This book describes MI applications in the treatment of anxiety, depression, PTSD, suicidal behavior, obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorders, gambling addictions, schizophrenia, and dual diagnoses. Also addressed are MI approaches in the criminal justice system. Each chapter provides a concise overview of the disorder or population under discussion; describes how MI has been integrated with standard treatment approaches; illustrates the nuts and bolts of intervention, using vivid clinical examples; and reviews the empirical evidence base.
