(from the chapter) Motivational interviewing, developed in the substance abuse field as an approach to alcohol use, has been extended to other kinds of substance abuse and other disorders that have an addictive quality. It is a brief intervention that can be incorporated into a single session and used in non-psychiatric settings. In recent years it has been widely used for adolescents in a variety of venues, with promising results. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved) (chapter)
