"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)

He introduced motivational interviewing in a 1983 article in the journal Behavioral Psychotherapy and in the first edition of Motivational Interviewing: Helping People Change, written with Stephen Rollnick, in 1991. Dr. Miller's research has focused particularly on the treatment and prevention of addictions, with broader implications for the psychology of change. He is a recipient of the international Jellinek Memorial Award, two career achievement awards from the American Psychological Association, and an Innovators in Combating Substance Abuse Award from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, among many other honors. The Institute for Scientific Information lists Dr. Miller as one of the world's most cited scientists.
Stephen Rollnick, PhD, is Honorary Distinguished Professor at the Cochrane Institute of Primary Care and Public Health at Cardiff University, United Kingdom. A clinical psychologist with many years of experience and a codeveloper of MI, as well as a cofounder of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers, Dr. Rollnick provides consultancy and training on the subjects of motivation, change, and MI. His research and guidelines for good practice have been widely published, and his work on implementation continues, with a current focus on children with HIV/AIDS in Africa, pregnant teens in deprived communities, and MI for teachers and sports coaches. With William R. Miller, Dr. Rollnick is coauthor of the classic work Motivational Interviewing: Helping People Change, now in its third edition.

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.
Miller and Rollnick walk through the different aspects of MI in a manner that makes the information accessible to newcomers yet is still interesting for those who are already familiar with Motivational Interviewing. For trainers, this book will enable you to easily update your classes and bring them up-to-date.
For those not familiar with MI, this book will help you to understand the collaborative conversation style that helps you to guide another to a decision while recognizing their autonomy and evoking their reasons to make a change. If you believe you will be able to read this book and walk away able to be an immediate expert in MI, you will probably be disappointed. However, if you embrace these teachings and begin to incorporate the techniques into your "conversational repertoire," you will be on your way to understanding just how powerful Motivational Interviewing can be.
