Overview

This second edition features two all-new chapters, including THE HUMAN BRAIN AND SOCIAL THREAT: IMPACT ON PATIENTS AND HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS and HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SKILL TO USE? Both chapters result from what the authors have learned from their interactions over the past six years with their students and health care professionals. The authors have applied motivational interviewing to the complex behavior change that is central to patients being able to manage chronic illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, osteoporosis, etc. This book identifies critical interactional dynamics to assist health care providers (HCP’s) in developing a conversational “flow” with the patient. How does empathic understanding create a relationship that allows patients to discuss barriers (and benefits) to managing their illnesses? How can the HCP guide patients to choices they can make to manage their illnesses? How do we encourage patients to talk about how they make sense of their illnesses and what is happening to them? Using MI will enable you to communicate with your patients in a clear, concise, and sensible way that helps open your patients to the possibility of behavior change. By using the tools and skills in this revised second edition, you can have a greater impact on improving your patient outcomes. KEY FEATURES: • Two new chapters address the human brain and social threat, and how to know what MI skills to use • Provides a practical, step-by-step approach to the use of MI skills and tools in all practice settings • Includes multiple dialogues between HCPs and patients to illustrate the use of MI skills and tools
