visión de conjunto:Críticas Simply the best current and comprehensive work in this area. I truly enjoyed reading--and learned from--this volume. Key contributors cover conceptual bases research and application issues with equal assurance.

Dobson PhD Department of Psychology University of Calgary Canada The second edition reflects contemporary advances in the practice of MI as well as the solid science supporting its efficacy across a wide range of clinical problems. The contributors are outstanding practitioner-researchers. This is an excellent text for graduate courses aimed at conveying skills in research-supported psychotherapies as is increasingly being mandated by professional guidelines. I highly recommend this book for graduate students and established practitioners alike.--Bruce A. Thyer PhD LCSW BCBA-D College of Social Work Florida State University Reading this second edition has enhanced my motivation to learn more and teach more about this important effective and pragmatic approach. I will never again be 'stuck' in a psychotherapy impasse without thinking about using MI principles. The editors and contributors emphasize both the spirit and the technique of MI and apply it to treatment of specific symptoms and disorders. The book is of great value to novice and seasoned practitioners alike and is an outstanding classroom text.--Richard F.

Wright MD PhD Professor and Kolb Endowed Chair of Outpatient Psychiatry and Director Depression Center University of Louisville I have had the pleasure of using this book for many years as a supplemental text in advanced graduate courses on psychotherapy psychopathology and MI. The text addresses one of the most important challenges for MI--the application of MI skills and strategies to the more complex problems in living. The editors and contributors are the top tier of MI trainers and researchers and take on this challenge with great elegance and competence.
