Overview

Handbook of Motivation and Change: A Practical Guide for Clinicians is a busy clinician's guide to Motivational Interviewing. With a special focus on substance use disorders and addiction, this unique handbook equips readers with a full understanding of the Motivational Interviewing approach -- an understanding that readers can flexibly apply to address patients' issues of motivation and change even beyond substance use.

A multidisciplinary book, written by more than 20 practitioners of different psychotherapies who employ motivational work, this volume features a collection of case studies punctuated by movie references that illustrate discussed concepts, practical suggestions for treatment and trainee supervision, and summary key points and multiple-choice questions for readers. Authors focus on interventions ranging from psychopharmacology to support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, zero in on the unique challenges of treating patients at various stages of their lives, examine how motivational work can change a culture, and discuss the evidence base of this effective and compelling therapy. The practical reach of this handbook will appeal not only to the general psychiatrist but to family practitioners, internists, pediatricians, medical students, and allied professionals. More than a how-to manual, this book provides clinicians with expert insight and information that will help them meet their patients in the midst of the very real challenges of motivation and lasting change.

This handbook: • Provides actual case studies written by psychiatrists working directly with patients with substance use disorders.• Is built on the main theoretical platforms of two ground-breaking innovations in addiction treatment: 1) Prochaska and DiClemente's transtheoretical or stages of change model and 2) Miller and Rollnick's Motivational Interviewing.• Explores the fundamentals of motivation and change, the stages of those changes, and how to treat patients at various stages of change.• Reviews the intersection of motivational work with other interventions from psychopharmacology to Alcoholics Anonymous.• Details the unique challenges of treating patients throughout the life cycle, including adolescents and older adults.

Handbook of Motivation and Change: A Practical Guide for Clinicians is accessible to both clinicians with an interest in substance use disorders and to clinicians who do not have specialized knowledge or expertise in addiction treatment. Its 16 chapters are augmented by two appendixes featuring Internet resources and movie listings that demonstrate a wide range of addiction- and change-related topics.

This handbook will be a well-used diagnostic reference in the library of any professional seeking a better understanding of motivational work and the treatment of substance use disorders.

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Brett C. Plyler, M.D. (Northwestern Memorial Hospital)
Description: This guide to motivational interviewing has a particular focus on addiction and substance abuse.
Purpose: The purpose is to educate general psychiatrists in the techniques of motivational interviewing.
Audience: The book is written for general psychiatrists as well as "anyone else interested in the issues of motivation and change," according the authors. Beginning therapists and those not familiar with motivational interviewing would find this book helpful.
Features: The 16 chapters discuss the issues of motivation and change with patients, with a particular emphasis on substance abuse/addiction. Each chapter is divided into easy to reference subheadings with key points and multiple choice questions at the end of chapter. The "movie/television" series subheading relates the chapter topic to a relevant movie or television series to help readers understand the points. Chapters include the stages of change (precontemplation, contemplation, etc.) to maintenance of change to working with adolescents and older adults.
Assessment: This is a decent introduction to motivational interviewing for beginning therapists or those with little therapeutic experience. It is a bit simplistic for general psychiatrists and at times a bit heavy-handed in the attempt to demonstrate motivational techniques in the case studies. The movie/television examples are a nice touch in most of the chapters. There are a couple of references on the back cover and the preface to this book being "fun" or "entertaining," which seems a little inappropriate and, furthermore, the book doesn't deliver. However, this book is a fairly good introduction to motivational work.
