Experiential Motivational Interviewing: An Action-Oriented Way of Being

by Marc Pimsler, Matthew McKenzie

Motivational Interviewing is technically defined as a collaborative, goal-oriented style of communication with particular attention in the language of change.  It is designed to strength personal motivation for and commitment to a specific goal by eliciting and exploring the person's own reasons for change within an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion.  Motivational Interviewing has been one of the top approaches to be empirically proven to improve patient outcomes across a wide variety of populations, especially substance abuse treatment settings, due to the relationship that is formed when one puts on the 'Motivational Interviewing hat'.  Let us look at the relational and technical components that collectively compose motivational interviewing.

This book is a wonderful mix of theory and activities, and a great resource for any facilitator, therapist or counselor with an experiential-based practice.
