Hohman (social work, San Diego State U.), who is joined by other social workers from the US and UK for some chapters, introduces social work students and practitioners to motivational interviewing as a communication method to help clients draw on their strengths to commit to and implement positive changes in their lives. Integrating case examples throughout, she explains the fundamentals of motivational interviewing and how it fits with social work values, ethics, and practice; its core skills, including the use of empathy, open-ended questions, affirmations, reflections, and summaries; how it can enhance assessment, promote engagement and self-efficacy, and supplement other interventions and group work; applications in community organizing, groups, and with resistant adolescents; and integration into social work practice.
