Editorial Reviews

Review

"A superb, readable guide to theory and practice. MI has fundamentally changed the way we think about working with less motivated clients, especially in today's health care climate, with its emphasis on evidence-based brief treatments. The four-part framework introduced in this edition greatly simplifies the way that MI is delivered. Miller and Rollnick do a superb job of breaking down a complex process. At each step, readers see exactly why the provider is choosing certain questions or statements over others."--Scott T. Walters, PhD, School of Public Health, University of North Texas Health Science Center; member, Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT)

"This book builds on the prior editions, but the result is substantially different, because it incorporates so many new concepts, skills, research findings, and practical applications. Written in a user-friendly manner, with many sample dialogues, this is an immensely useful resource. It is a 'must have' for anyone who is learning MI or utilizing the approach in clinical practice, from students to seasoned professionals."--Melinda Hohman, PhD, School of Social Work, San Diego State University; member, Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT)

"The most complete explication of MI to date. Building on the explosion of MI research in the past decade, most of the material in this third edition is new, including compelling advances in understanding how MI influences the process of personal change. This book is destined to have an enormous impact on the field. It is a 'must-adopt' text for courses in psychology, counseling, social work, mental health, addictions, and health care more broadly."--Timothy J. O'Farrell, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School

"We have used Motivational Interviewing in our program for several years. It prepares students to work effectively with ambivalent and court-ordered clients using methods that are evidence based and appropriate for our profession. Students really appreciate learning this technique; they've commented that even though they thought they already knew how to interview, Miller and Rollnick present a very different and meaningful approach."--Patricia M. Henry, LMSW, Department of Social Work, California State University, Bakersfield (on the second edition)

"Motivational Interviewing is one of the few texts that I can assign to my MSW students year after year for my Clinical Practice course and know they will love it as much as I do. Some of my students have 20 years of social service experience and some are fresh out of their BSW programs, but all find something practical, insightful, and useful in the text. No other text does a better job of helping people understand how to work with ambivalence in clients. I love how I don't have to spend time in class coming up with examples that bring the concepts down to earth--the book is filled with believable, instructive case studies and sample dialogues. Students can learn the concepts by reading the text as homework, which gives us time in class to practice and role-play the techniques. This is one of the few books I assign that my MSW students keep after graduation."--Jonathan B. Singer, PhD, LCSW, School of Social Work, Temple University (on the second edition)

"Miller and Rollnick afford practitioners conceptual and practical tools to improve therapeutic outcomes. In my Counseling Challenging Adolescents course, I have found that this text strengthens graduate students' clinical repertoires on multiple levels, while allowing them to continue to explore the broad array of theoretical perspectives that hold personal appeal for them. Very few of my students sell back this book at the end of the term!"--Kurt L. Kraus, EdD, Department of Counseling and College Student Personnel, Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania (on the second edition)

"MI is a core clinical skill that is crucial for psychologists, social workers, counselors, or anybody who hopes to help people discover their own intrinsic motivation to change. This book not only explains what MI is, but also explains the research and theory that support it in a clear and accessible way. I have had more positive feedback from students regarding this book than any other text I've used, and it is wonderful to watch the light go on in their eyes as they gain understanding about behavior change and how MI works. I could not imagine a course in addiction science without MI!"--Monica C. Skewes, PhD, Department of Psychology and Center for Alaska Native Health Research, University of Alaska Fairbanks (on the second edition)



"Not only has the original book become a classic, but MI has taken the world by storm....The methods described gel extremely well with social work's strengths/empowerment perspective."--Journal of Social Work Practice in the Addictions
(Journal of Social Work Practice in the Addictions 2012-09-09)

"Highly recommended to all practitioners in health settings and to clinicians supervising and teaching others."--Drug and Alcohol Review
(Drug and Alcohol Review 2012-09-09)

"The strength of this book lies in its reader-friendly yet scholarly approach."--Community Mental Health Journal
(Community Mental Health Journal 2012-09-09)

"This approach is one that can be powerfully used by occupational therapy practitioners who are working in mental health and substance abuse settings, or any psychosocial behavioral health setting....In preparing professional students for practice, I view this approach as foundational to their effectiveness in building motivation and strengthening commitment to change with their clients."--Occupational Therapy in Mental Health
(Occupational Therapy in Mental Health 2006-01-03)

"This text is filled with exemplary phrases that psychiatrists can incorporate into their lexicons....MI is compatible with evidence-based clinical skills and a variety of psychotherapy perspectives, including psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, experiential therapy, and family systems theory. The book illustrates clinical case examples to prepare psychiatrists who work in all different types of settings....This is a user-friendly, engaging, and comprehensive text that should be required reading for all practicing clinicians."--Clinical Psychiatry News
(Clinical Psychiatry News 2013-04-01)

"Excellently written and a genuine pleasure to read, being highly accessible for clinical practitioners and lay people alike....This book is essential reading for anyone in the business of helping people to change and will be considered an invaluable resource for many years to come."--Addiction Today
(Addiction Today 2013-07-12)

I love MI. It's a down-to-earth and practical way of listening to people and assisting them to change. This book is written in a more accessible style than 2nd edition (and I like the 2nd edition very much.)

The 3rd Edition is a fantastic read. I have been practicing MI for many years and I am so impressed with the way Bill and Stephen have kept the material fresh and up to date. In this edition, they add a new paradigm for understanding how to tailor your skills (the 4 processes) to the relationship you are developing with the person considering change. Also, they consider MI from a multicultural perspective, offering acknowledge and suggestions about how MI may at times need to be tailored to the person receiving this empathic conversation. Having read all 3 editions, this one is by far the most approachable and easily understood. They update the research on MI and include copious suggestions around learning MI and applying it to various settings and approaches. MI is not a therapeutic technique, it is a way of being, and embracing the values and spirit of MI will change your life for the better, giving you the tools and way of thinking to be a kinder, more gentle, and compassionate human being. Kudos!

An essential addition to my Motivational Interviewing library. Have already started to incorporate new approach into my teaching. The DVD that goes with it is great too.

This book is very well organized. Each topic is introduced and explained, and then later chapters explore the subjects more deeply. It's like a semester course in book format - building on knowledge as you prgress through the chapters. Each chapter concludes with a well written summary.

The information is also presented in a very practical way - which is important to me as I am currently working as a health coach. Previous courses I have taken spend too much time on the history and philosophy and not enough on the practical applications of motivational interviewing. These authors provide plenty of real-life examples to make the information more meaningful and applicable. Not only are great coaching techniques presented with examples, they also offer common mistakes to avoid.

I am taking my time with this book and I am currently half way through. I can honestly say I am seeing an improvement in my connection with my clients (engaging) and more optimism and excitement for change in my clients. My personal confidence in my coaching has improved and I am enjoying my work more as a result of this book.

Not only has this book helped me improve my coaching and motivational interviewing techniques, it has inspired me to be a better coach and to continue to improve so that I can assist others in making lasting change. I highly recommend it to those wanting to increase their methods of assisting change, no matter what your coaching niche may be.

I've received fairly extensive training in MI, and I find this book to be by far the best explanation of the approach. I'm only about 1/2 way through reading it, and already I'm very glad that I decided to purchase the 3rd edition. This new revision makes the process easier to understand and teach, and I'll be reading this book probably several more times to be sure I fully understand all the subtleties and suggestions. If you do any work with MI, you'll be glad you own this book.
