(from the chapter) How do we talk with patients? As physicians and psychiatrists, having made a diagnostic assessment and a treatment plan, how do we get our patients to follow it? Surprisingly little in medical school or specialty training, even psychiatric training, teaches this—what would seem a rather fundamental clinical skill. The same may often be true in allied fields such as psychology, social work, and nursing. This is the focus of Motivational Interviewing and the focus of this introductory book.
