Motivational Interviewing Books
- Motivational Interviewing in Nutrition and Fitness
Making and maintaining lasting changes in nutrition and fitness is not easy for anyone. Yet the communication style of a health professional can make a huge difference. This book presents the proven counseling approach known as motivational interviewing (MI) and shows exactly how to use it in day-to-day interactions with clients. MI offers simple yet powerful tools for helping clients work through ambivalence, break free of diets and quick-fix solutions, and overcome barriers to change. Extensive sample dialogues illustrate specific ways to enhance conversations about meal planning and preparation, exercise, body image, disordered eating, and more. Reproducible forms and handouts can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2″ x 11″ size. Instructors requesting a desk copy from Guilford will be emailed a link to supplemental PowerPoint slides and exam questions.
- Motivational Interviewing: Helping People Change, 3rd Edition
This bestselling work for professionals and students is the authoritative presentation of motivational interviewing (MI), the powerful approach to facilitating change. The book elucidates the four processes of MI – engaging, focusing, evoking, and planning – and vividly demonstrates what they look like in action. A wealth of vignettes and interview examples illustrate the “do’s and don’ts” of successful implementation in diverse contexts. Highly accessible, the book is infused with respect and compassion for clients. The companion webpage provides additional helpful resources, including reflection questions, an extended bibliography, and annotated case material.
