Recent Comments "Motivational Interviewing with Adolescents and Young Adults"

This books does a really nice job of explaining the process and modifications of MI with younger people. Younger people present unique challenges for the therapist, which are taken into account in this book.

A great book that explains the basics of MI and how to utilize it with young adults. A lot of it is very basic information, so if you're familiar with MI it may not be as beneficial though it does give unique insight it to many different scenarios with which MI could be used.

There were some valuable insights, but little new information for those who are already familiar with motivational interviewing.

Chapters 1-8 are worth reading. Pick and choose from the remaining chapters for specific applications.
