Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Andrea D. Posey, RN, BSN, MSN (University of Alaska Anchorage)
Description: This guide presents a method of achieving behavioral changes in clients. The authors use this method to approach the concept from a client-centered basis.
Purpose: The authors state that the purpose of this publication is to make their method of health behavior change available to healthcare workers of all disciplines. This unique approach is applicable to long and short-term contacts with clients.
Audience: The authors' experiences as healthcare professionals include a clinical psychologist, nurse/counselor, and lecturer. They have targeted a multidisciplinary audience and the book is written in appropriate language for healthcare professionals.
Features: The method of behavioral change is first discussed from a theoretical point of view. Topics are broken down into tasks. They include patient assessment for readiness to learn, gaining rapport, and building a relationship with a client. The method is applied to clinical practice and includes information about overcoming resistance in clients. Each task is explained thoroughly. A complete reference list is included.
Assessment: Changing health behavior in clients is a major component of a healthcare professional's job. This method of behavior change is easy to understand and apply. It is a valuable resource for all who engage in patient teaching.
From the Publisher
"The book is engaging and practical, written by professionals who have theoretical understanding of behavior change and more importantly, the wisdom that comes from years of facilitating positive behavior change in their patients. This book should be required reading for every health care professional ." Mary Marden Velasquez Ph.D, University of Houston something you can pick up and then use the next day? This is it! A fine little book, this is a must read for people working in the health care professions ." David B Rosengren, Ph.D, University of Washington invaluable resource for both the most seasoned primary health care professionals as well as students of clinical health psychology, medical social work, nurse education, and general medicine. Three cheers to Drs. Rollnick, Mason, and Butler!!" Gary Rose, Ph.D, Harvard School of Medicine outstandingly helpful and practical book for health professionals ." William R Miller, Ph.D, University of New Mexico absorbing book, written by a clinical psychologist, a nurse and a GP, challenges the ways in which we are taught to advise patients on health promotion matters and shows the doctor how such advice could be delivered more effectively." Dr Jeremy M Sager, familymedicine.co.uk, May 1999
nuts and bolts of how to help patients change their behaviour from the experts an invaluable guide for counsellors who are increasingly asked to work with patients with chronic medical conditions." Dr Graham Curtis Jenkins, Director, Counselling in Primary Care Trust, January 2001
thoughtful, practical guide that deserves to be read by a whole host of health practitioners. I am recommending it to my colleagues and students interested in health behaviour change as required reading." Carlo C Diclemente, Tobacco Control, vol 9, January 2000
most exciting contribution is that it gives readers specific guidelines on how to apply theories to everyday practice. It is hard to imagine a reader who would come away from this book without concrete ideas on how to improve encounters with clients." Betsy D Foy and Scott T Walters, Health Promotion Practice, vol 2,, October 2001

    A Welcomed Topic

    One of the few books out there that show health care professionals how to get their patients to do all the healthy things that they need to be doing. Let's face it, you can have all the knowledge in the world about what is good for patients to do, but its all useless unless you can get them to do it!

    Excellent handbook for clinical work

    This is a wonderful book for practitioners who are working in the area of behavioral medicine (in my case, psychology, although it is also designed for primary care physicians, nurses, etc.). It offers practical suggestions, lots of good clinical examples, and tips on how to deal with resistance from both clients and staff.
