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.
