Writing for any health care practitioner who spends time encouraging patients to consider behavior change, Rollnick, (health care communication, Cardiff University, Wales) presents communication tools for guiding patients in making choices about weight loss, safe sex practices, smoking cessation, medication adherence, and other health matters. Part I of the book overviews motivational interviewing and its evidence base, then describes three communication styles and three specific core skills, and Part II shows how these skills can be refined in the service of the guiding style of motivational interviewing. Part III offers practical examples and guidelines for improving motivational interviewing skills. Appendices list training resources and publications on specific medical conditions. The readership for the book includes nurses, doctors, dieticians, social workers, dentists, and physical and occupational therapists. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
