Over the years as a health and wellness coach and trainer, I’ve learned that facilitating change in a person takes more than just telling them what to do. I’m looking forward to reading more books on this topic of change psychology.

Motivational Interviewing: Helping People Change

This is the authoritative, bestselling guide that professionals and students turn to for a complete introduction to motivational interviewing (MI), the powerful approach to facilitating change. The book elucidates the four processes of MI—engaging, focusing, evoking, and planning—and vividly demonstrates what they look like in action. A wealth of vignettes and interview examples illustrate the “dos and don’ts” of successful implementation in diverse contexts. Highly accessible, the book is infused with respect and compassion for clients. The companion Web page provides additional helpful resources, including reflection questions, an extended bibliography, and annotated case material.
