(from the chapter) Since the first clinical description of motivational interviewing (MI), research and applications have mushroomed. First applied to problem drinking, MI has subsequently been used with a variety of other problems, including drug abuse, gambling, eating disorders, anxiety disorders, chronic disease management, and health-related behaviors. In this chapter, we present an overview of MI, including ways it has been used in clinical practice, outcome research, how it may work, and how clinicians learn it.
