Endorsements

I have been waiting for a book like this one. This much-needed volume will be of tremendous value to social workers who have struggled to engage and facilitate change in a broad range of client populations. It is rich with helpfully presented, annotated sample dialogues illustrating the skillful application of MI in social work contexts.
-Andrew Hamid, PhD,
School of Social Work, Columbia University

This delightful book succeeds in putting MI into the context of social work education and practice. It explores the role of theory in MI, provides examples that are specific to social work, and clarifies how MI fits with social work values and ethics. The book closely examines the principles and skills of MI and provides plenty of practical sample interviews. I will use this book as a text in my master's-level social work courses. It will be a great resource for students as they begin to practice in a variety of settings.
-Mary Marden Velasquez, PhD,
School of Social Work, University of Texas at Austin

Finally there is a book that summarizes the vast literature on MI that is most relevant to social workers! What separates this from other MI books are the detailed descriptions of social workers' contributions to MI development and research and the discussion of how the model is consistent with social work values. Hohman has produced a remarkable book that is highly readable and chock full of interesting examples drawn from her personal journey learning MI and training others to use it. Social work educators will find this book very useful for a wide variety of practice classes.
-Douglas C. Smith, PhD, LCSW,
School of Social Work, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Providing an accessible, practical description of why and how to integrate motivational interviewing (MI) into social work practice, this text offers an invaluable discussion of one of the most empirically supported intervention approaches in the field today. With the charge to move toward evidence-based practice in social work, beginning and advanced practitioners alike will appreciate the fact that MI has been tested in nearly 300 clinical outcome studies. Hohman and colleagues offer detailed transcripts and clinical vignettes that break down the MI process into discrete, readily learned chunks. Students in foundation and advanced courses on social work practice, addictions treatment, and health and mental health social work will benefit from learning how MI principles and techniques can be applied to address the real-world challenges of common clinical scenarios.

College of Social Work and Trinity Institute for the Addictions, Florida State University

Editorial Reviews

"Hohman teaches social work practice, substance abuse treatment, and MI at both undergraduate and graduate level....She clearly has a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and experience to draw upon. Likewise, the 10 contributing authors all have related knowledge and experience....Interspersed throughout the book are dialogue examples that I personally find very useful when contemplating the idea of transferring theory into practice....The reader will be able to learn and reflect upon situations where MI may be appropriately implemented and integrated within practice. It has to be commended for this....A useful addition to the idea of the application of Ml within a broader range of services or settings than one would traditionally think of."
